Legnica Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 43 photos
Badly damaged during WW2, the town revived as an industrial centre following the discovery of copper deposits in the region.
The town has many historic buildings...A voivodeship town with 100,000 inhabitants is situated between the Silesian Lowland and the Sudety Upland. It is the economic, cultural and administrative centre of the Legnica-Glogow Copper Basin with big copper mines, metallurgical works, clothing factory and a well-known piano factory. Legnica, as one of the oldest Silesian towns, was the capital of the Piast duchy until the 17th century. Among the historical sights mention should be made of an old market square with the so called herring stalls in the Renaissance style. Peter and Paul's church from the 14th century, the duke's Castle with the Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance elements, a complex of Baroque architecture with St. John's church and the mausoleum of Legnica and Brzeg Piasts, the former Academy for the Nobility, the Abbot's College, fragments of medieval defence walls, etc. An interesting copper museum is to be found there, too.
