I would like to tell you about my last trip. I have found a really high discount on tickets to one of Polish bus lines (you know which one ;) ) so I decided to visit Wroclaw, the largest city of the Lower Silesia. The trip took about three hours and a round-trip ticket costed 10 zloty so I did not hesitate. My boyfriend was my trip companion. We like long field trips so we planned every hour of our departure. We was also so lucky that the accomodation we had booked was also very cheap. Being a student, I paid 31 zloty per night. The condition of apartment was also very well. We slept in a dormitory of University of Environmental and Life Sciences in district Midtown.
Wroclaw made us impressed a lot. It is a city of nearly 100 bridges. These are everywhere. Wroclaw lies on a few islands which are incorporated. It is quite a big city, in which live about 635 thousand people. The public transport is well-developed. There are many tram lines which come in nearly every part of the city.
The Old Town is full of colorful tenement houses, fountains and churches. One of them gave us a possibility to benefit from a really high tower, from which we were able to admire a panorama. The view was breathtaking! Wroclaw is famous from gnomes. Small figures are located in many parts of the Old Town. It was challenging to find them ;)
A totally new item for me was a Japanese Garden, in which we was able to admire many kinds of bushes and flowers. This place is really well-neat and gives a possibility to show something different from that we have in our parks and gardens.
I was also impressed by a building of the Slask Wroclaw football stadium, which was one of the places where played footballers during the Euro 2012. The stadium is located on the suburbs, close to the highway. There is simple to get there because we can take one of two trams or train, the station of which is really next to the stadium. The building is big but a little bit to grey but the surroundings is safe. There are subways which gurantee a safe way from the station to the stadium.
What special did I notice in Wroclaw was the people who are really open-minded and like spending free time together. During a weekend close to parks, halls and the stadium there are organised outdoor events with concerts, markets and plays for children. The inhabitants of Wroclaw take part in them with pleasure which I noticed seeing how many car drivers wanted to park their cars the closest to the event place they were able to.
I really recommand you to visit Wroclaw, which for me is a city different from every other Polish one.
