The Royal Palace, or more precisely the former palace of Prussian kings is located in the area of the Four Denominations District. The beginnings of the palace date back to the 18th century. In the period from the eighteenth to the twentieth century was the Wrocław residence of the Prussian kings of the Hohenzollern dynasty. The palace was the main element of the newly created Exercise Square, which was the site of numerous parades. After World War I and the creation of the republic in Germany, it was transformed into a museum. During World War II, the south and south-west wings burned down and were demolished in the 1950s. The remaining palace buildings were rebuilt from war damage. Currently, the restored palace houses the City Museum, where you can admire nearly 3,000 exhibits as part of the exhibition entitled; 1,000 years of Wrocław. It is also worth visiting the baroque garden adjacent to the palace.
