Poland, Wroclaw Guide (B): Experience the Charm of Wroclaw, Poland

Poland might not be a country that is on everyone’s bucket list, but after a recent visit, I’d say it needs to be! Wroclaw was absolute love at first sight. It’s full of wonderful surprises that instantly made me fall in love! It boasts one of the loveliest squares in Europe, adorablized by a voluminous number of gnomes scattered throughout the city and has some of the most delicious food! This budget-friendly town was 100% worth the visit!

First of all, the name Wroclaw is pronounced VRAWTS-wahf not roar-claw. Break that habit now before you even go. It is a mouth full, but the ‘W’ is pronounced with a ‘V’ sound while the ‘C’ is pronounced with ‘TS’ sound. And if it’s too hard, you can call the city ‘Breslau’ as it is still commonly referred to in German. 

During our short time in Poland, we learned about the complicated history that Poland endured before finally gaining its own independence. No matter which city you visit in Poland, be it Pozńan, Gdańsk or even Wroclaw, you can see and feel the past and just how far the country has risen out of the ashes, the painfully slow process it took to rebuild each city that is now attracting more visitors and how the country is embracing its past to enlighten others. During this post, I will share with you what we managed to see and explore in the 36 hours we were in Wroclaw.  ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
