The residents of our city have returned to the medieval tradition of celebrations of St. John the Baptist, the patron saint of Wroclaw cathedral and one of the two – next to the blessed Ceslaus -patrons of Wroclaw, as well as to the Midsummer Night tradition – Sobótka.

The organization of the Day of Wroclaw is based on the principle that the City Festival is an excellent opportunity to showcase the potential and achievements of the cultural, economic and scientific environments of Wroclaw. The highlight of the celebration is a Solemn Session of the City Council of Wroclaw organized inside the Town Hall. The session is combined with celebrations of the title of Honorary Citizen of the City, as well as the City of Wrocław and the Mayor of Wroclaw awards. The main celebrations on June 24 are complemented by a Holy Mass celebrated at the Cathedral in the intention of the inhabitants of Wroclaw.
