Poland – Centennial Hall in Wrocław

Wrocław, pronounced “Rotes – slav”, is a beautiful Polish medieval city with a vibrant cultural scene. Looking at the restored buildings in the historic center one can imagine what life may have been like four or five hundred years ago, while sipping a nice Starbucks café latte macchiato! The view from this café is incredible and, of course, free wifi is always enticing. But we weren’t in Poland to check the pulse of globalization; we were far more interested in getting out and walking the city, and finding the absolute best things to do in Wroclaw. Along our walk we found dwarfs galore  and an enormous 360 degree panorama painting, markets, museums, as well as the best pierogies I’ve ever eaten.

It’s easy to see why Wroclaw was voted the Best European Destination of 2018! We totally agree. In fact, as you can see from our Poland travel blog and guide, we are just starting to scratch the surface of this large country. Even so, we’ve traveled to Wroclaw twice; the city has such a good vibe we just love going there.

There are few reasons for an alarm to be waking you at 2:30am. That’s more a time for going to bed than getting up. One of the reasons I would, and did, get up at that time, would be the chance of seeing a magical animal. I’ve had a thing for bison ever since seeing one in High Park in Toronto. That one was in a pen, which made me quite sad as it was such a huge majestic beast. I later found out that we have bison in Europe, but not many. There are about 2500 in the wild, most of which are in Poland.
