Wroclaw – My Favorite City in Poland, Wroclaw, Poland (B)

Wroclaw is the 4th largest city in the country. It’s located in Western Poland in the Silesia region, on the Oder river ( Odra ). In 2016 it was named the Cultural Capital of Europe. It doesn’t come as a surprise as cultural life thrives in Wroclaw, with many theatres, museums and an opera. The title gave Wroclaw an opportunity to host various cultural events, which brought the city the much deserved attention. Wroclaw is also a vibrant student city, as it’s home to one of the best and biggest universities in the country : Uniwersytet Wroclawski. 

A very characteristic thing about Poland is, that most cities have Rynek ( Market Square), that is always the heart of the city. Rynek in Wroclaw is one of the largest in Europe. It’s a very lively place, especially in the summer, with many people passing through or just hanging out in one the many outdoor cafés. You will find street performers of many kind : musicians, sculptors and magicians.  ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
