WROCŁAW (94km from Ostrów Wlkp.)
Wrocław is an excellent example of a multicultural metropolis situated at the interface of ethnically diverse areas. For a greater part of the city's history, German was the dominant language in Wrocław. However, for several generations the city was home to the Korn publishing house, which printed many books in Polish (250 titles between 1732 and 1790). Here the German playwright Karl Holtei staged a play about the Polish national hero Tadeus Kosciusko in 1826. The Czechs have also played an important role in the city's history (in 1335- 1526 Wrocław belonged to the Kingdom of Bohemia). As late as 1719, the great sculptor Johann Georg Urbanski of Bohemia was given the key to the city.
KALISZ (24 km from Ostrów Wlkp.)
The second biggest city in Wielkopolska, sited in the picturesque valley of the Prosna river. The oldest traces of human activity in the area of the city reach the Mesolithic. The settlement of this territory during the period of influence of the Roman Empire was triggered by its proximity to the Amber Route, connecting the Empire with the Baltic Sea coast. The importance of this settlement was confirmed by Ptolemy, a scholar from Alexandria, who mentioned a town called Calisia in his 2nd-century work titled "Geography". Calisia is believed to be the town which we know today as Kalisz. This fact made Kalisz the oldest certified city in Poland.
