In the end we decided to head back into the old centre of Wroclaw and set about finding the 300 year old University. Both Steve and I work at Universities (his campus is much older and grander than mine, so much so that the University of Greenwich is a popular site for films - Les Mis, Pirates of the Caribbean 2 and Thor 2 are all recent productions that have disrupted his day to day work) so we are often interested in local educational facilities when abroad.
I have to admit, the University of Wroclaw's front door is a bit grander than I was expecting
Silesian duchies and barons’ provinces. Be warned; the galleries open to tourists are spread over 4 floors and there are no lifts. Between the top of the mathematics tower and the main entrance there are 204 steps. We counted them.
