From the Oratorium Marianum, we climbed the stairs to visit another hall that is as exquisite as the previous chamber. This room is the Aula Leopoldina.

The Aula Leopoldina is one of the University of Wroclaw halls and used as a lecture room as well as venues for conferring degrees and other liturgical occasions. An authentic Baroque style; this university named after the Austrian Emperor Leopold, does feature many frescoes reflecting symbolisms of religion and academic learning. Besides the stucco work; the stunning murals in this hall will leave anyone awed by its glowing beauty. Distinct on both sides, are walls richly ornate with century old paintings and sculptures of founding intellectuals from the time the university was established.

It is surprising to learn that the Aula Leopoldina was not affected by bombings during WWII. Intact up to now thankfully; this university hall is still serving its original function. Moreover, this room has become a tourist attraction in itself! Therefore, it is now open to locals and visitors alike. For those who like to knock off some pictures, both the Oratorium Marianum, and Aula Leopoldina; photography is allowed. However, the sublime painting of the Virgin Mary on the ceiling over the podium is hard to snap a picture.

For a better tour, ask if audio guides are inclusive in the entrance fee. It is always nice to get some information while participating in the tour of the hall.

It's amazing, isn't it? And your photos are excellent.
I once had the unique chance to visit with the director of the museum. But I don't remember all the many details he told us, shame on me...
