About Panorama Raclawicka
Panorama Raclawicka was created to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Raclawicka of 1794. The idea for the patriotic painting came from the artist Jan Styka, but several artists, including celebrated Polish battle-painter Wojciech Kossak, also worked on the project.
The panorama took only nine months to complete and was first shown at the National Exhibition in Lviv in 1894. After World War II, the Panorama was brought to Wroclaw. Though suppressed under Soviet rule, the canvas was restored and exhibited in the 1980s and is now one of Wroclaw's biggest tourist attractions.
At Panorama Raclawicka, visitors can view a presentation devoted to the painting's historical context in the small rotunda. The main hall features multimedia displays that explain Panorama Raclawicka in more detail, including its artists, its conservation and details of other European panoramas.
