I wasn’t sure what to expect in my first town in Poland. We took the bus from Berlin and arrived by evening (5hr bus ride). You know when you’ve seen so many images of a place you know what is awaiting. This was not like that. First off, the name of the city is not pronounced at all like it’s written (vrots-wahf). Second of all, how are the universities in Europe so ornate and beautiful!?
We just stayed in walking distance to the Market Square and the main train station and it was easy to keep walking around. We couldn’t wait to sample the local cuisine and eagerly tried the delicious polish donut- pączki, zurek soup served in a big bread roll, stuffed cabbage and more pierogis during our few days in Wrocław. It was soon decided that we love polish cuisine and couldn’t wait to continue…

The square is gorgeous, like a sight from a fairy tale. Hunting for gnomes around the city sounds fun. Lovely post!
It’s so beautiful. Thank you for your kind comment!
Brings memories of our time there..loved the cabbage rolls
Have you ever tried making them at home? I’m afraid to try to recreate all these delicious dishes because mine won’t even be half as good.
Yes..I grew up with people from Poland learned how to make them.
Oh that’s great!
Looks lovely – and can’t beat a good pierogi! 🙂
Hmm, I could go for some any day of the week.
I’ve not visited Wroclaw, despite visiting much of the rest of Poland…so interesting that that’s how it’s pronounced! Poland has a soft spot in my heart, as I love the history, architecture, and the hearty food (I can’t say no to stuffed cabbage rolls)! Thanks for sharing your adventures in this Central European country!
It wasn’t a town that was even on my radar. I just thought it’d be a nice transit town! I would say the same- it’s a country I would love to go back to the next time I’m in side of the world. Would you like to return there one day?
I would return to Poland in a heartbeat! ❤
How lovely everything is! ♡ I especially like Stare Jatki bronze animals, they’re so pretty.
Colourful buildings are my favourite. Yes!, they are so nice.
