Wroclaw or WrocLOVE?

2013-11-04 21.45.32First thing to say about this beautiful polish city is how difficult might be the pronunciation of it…try with ‘vrotzlaf’ or breslavia if you are italian 🙂

After Poznan, football and vodka I reached ‘vrotzlaf’ by blablacar, not an easy ride, Mr. Kuba’s car had a couple of troubles during the way and we were lucky to arrive within 3 hours in the city.

Wroclaw is one of the biggest polish city (after Warsaw and Krakow), with a big student community, intense night-life and nice sightseeing to offer to tourists and travellers.

Let’s have a look at the city, with an astonishing square and building on the river banks:

Other symbol of the city, the small islands (Ostrow Tumski) and bridges, for this reason it’s called ‘the venice of poland’ for the amount of bridges, I was told around 200???? but I didn’t see so many!!!!

As per in Poznan, search for mleczny bar (milk bar) for a cheap and proper local tasty lunch (some of them are: Bar Mewa, Bar Bazylia, Bar Mis), there are also nice canteen-style restaurants that offer buffet meals priced by weight (one in fron t of the university entrance).

Night city tour…
