We are now moving on from Zakopane to Wroclaw, my husband's hometown, where he lived until he was 19 years old. Located in the Southwest portion of Poland, it is the fourth largest city in the country. You could vacation in this city for weeks and still not see everything there is to offer. Beautiful old churches, museums, monuments, a wonderful zoo, the Odra river with it's countless bridges, and a thriving city center are some of its highlights. (Not to mention great beer!)
Wroclaw was actually called Breslau and was part of Germany up until right after WWII, and was under the communist regime until the late 80's. Therefore the architechture is a real mixed bag. Even now, twenty years after the fall of communism, the city is still struggling to overcome the neglected infrastructure. They better get their act in gear quickly however, because Wroclaw will be a host city for the 2012 Euro Cup!
So much for Wordless. So...the above picture is taken at a farmers market walking distance from my in-laws apartment. It is hard not to walk away with more than you can eat. You will also be interested to know that people over there are very green...everyone carries baskets and reuseable mesh bags to shop.
