Looking for a good destination for a getaway weekend in Europe? You’ve heard about Kraków and Warsaw, but Wrocław…you don’t even know how to spell it? Let me help you, some call it WrocLove and I think it fits perfectly. Please, let me present you a city which with I fall in love 10 years ago when I decided to leave my home and come here to study. During this time I moved few times to different cities around the globe, but finally I always come back here. The city is placed in the South-West Poland, just around 300 km from Berlin, so it could be a nice stop in a road trip between Germany, Czech Republic and Poland. I am currently working and living in Wroclaw and I decided to write a post about this city as I am sincerely proud of it. Proud because I could feel and observe its amazing development during the last 10 years. The old and charming districts are being revitalized, small art galleries opened and finally, the river is starting to play a new, important role in the city. Not mentioning the amount of new cafeterias, bars, restaurants or (lately very popular) food trucks that are opened every month. As you might know, Wroclaw, as many others cities in this part of Europe, was almost completely destroyed during the second world war and because of new political division a lot of people had to leave their homes. Many of Polish Lwowians (today Lviv in Ukraine) found their new home in here and started to build together with other expats a new identity of the city. Now, after many years, I can say that this city has a soul. This was as well the main concept for Wrocław as the cultural capital of Europe. Showing that instead of denying our roots and trying to forget what happened, it is much better to take the advantage of a rich history and build an invisible bridge between the past and current habitants. Let me take you for a trip through the center of Wrocław. You can see a map below to follow the route if you feel like, I usually take my friends to these places as I find them either charming, magical or interesting. Of course you can find much more attractions and historical places to visit and this is only one of many path you could follow during the visit.

Hi! I’m Daria, 28 years old, Polish and currently living in Poland.
I went for my first trip without parents to the Polish coast when I was 6 years old. Since that time -summer, sea and wind in the hair make me happy. So far I lived in Spain, Brasil and the Netherlands. I have travelled a lot among Europe, as well discovered few great places in South America and Asia.
I studied Linguistic and Journalism and I am working in a translation agency. Currently I am back in Poland and I try to discover new places around the world as frequent as possible. Follow me! 🙂
