The Aula Leopoldina is a beautiful Baroque Hall in the main building of the University in Wroclaw. The Aula is named after the Austrian Emperor Leopold who founded the university in 1702.
The painting on the ceiling depicts the apotheosis of God's wisdom . Portraits on the walls depict the founding fathers of the University. Some years ago four of them were stolen and two have yet to be returned.
Aula Leopoldina is now mainly used as part of a university museum, as well as a place to circumvent the major university events (such as matriculation).
It is not allowed to take photos with a flash in the Aula.

Le décor baroque de ce hall est vraiment incroyable. Tu en as fait une très bonne photo. Je regrette de ne pas avoir visité l'intérieur de l'Université lors de mon bref séjour à Wroclaw.

Excellent view of this colourful hall. Very well managed light in tricky situation. Love the decor and the artwork. I can understand the rule about not using flash, here in India also flash is not allowed in caves with fresco paintings. Like the row of identical shadows on the aisle as well. Very well done, thanks for sharing.

An excellent shot of this baroque room, which at I first I thought it was a chapel
Good rendition of colors despite the low available light
A good job, very well done

una ripresa straoredinaria di un soggetto magnifico.
Il taglio perfetto e il POV prescelto hanno dato una grande evidenza al soffitto che insieme alle pareti sono la megnificenza di questa bellezza architettonica.
Superbi i colori dell'ambiente resi con grande fedelta e giusta saturazione.
Una immagine che non passa sicuramente inosservata.
Ciao e buona serata

piekne wnetrze. Podobaja mi sie detale, rzezby i sufitowe malowidla. Ladna symetria i perspektywa. Dobry kadr.

That's baroque glory in matured colours and it has lot to offer with your lovely symmetrical composition that seems to focus on the beautiful ceiling painting, taking the eye down and to the rest of the interior displaying such stunning art. I love the varied light and shadows, they make the formal discipline of the architecture more involving. You captured this so well, my congrats.
