Wrocław Psie Pole

Psie Pole (German: Hundsfeld) is one of the five administrative districts of Wrocław, Poland. It lies in the city's northern and northeastern parts, on the right shore of the Oder River. A part of Psie Pole is one of Wrocław's greenest neighborhoods, and its suburban location makes it an important transport hub toward Warsaw, Łódź and other locations in central Poland. Psie Pole is considered to be the site of the 1109 Battle of Hundsfeld between the Poles and the Germans, although the existence of this battle is doubted by historians because it was not mentioned until a century later.[1][2]
