Until recently, the northern Wrocław district of Nadodrze, has been perceived as one of the most neglected and dangerous areas of the city. Inhabited mainly by people with a low social status, by ethnic minorities or the unemployed, it seemed an unattractive place to live for representatives of higher echelons of the social ladder. Despite the poor opinion of Nadodrze, due to its historic character and central location, it has attracted avid interest of investors, developers and the city authorities. This triggered off restoration processes in the area which continues to this day. As a result, Nadodrze has changed its character. It has become an increasingly fashionable place to live and spend time. The effect of the restoration is also an inflow of representatives of the educated, more affluent middle class. Rental prices of accommodation and land have gone up; as a result, poorer groups of residents have been pushed out to other districts of the city. Among the consequences of restoration is gentrification, typically taking place in historic, post-industrial urban areas, which is also the case of Nadodrze. The gap between the former and the new inhabitants is widening. Tenants are being evicted and resettled from tenement houses. From a social point of view, this is a process of discrimination and marginalization of the former inhabitants of Nadodrze.
