Antony's Travel Page
Wroclaw (pronounced Vrots-Wharf) was by far my favourite city on the trip. I found it such a picturesque place. There are plenty of things to see and do, great restaurants and even better nightlife and all within typical Polish prices, GBP3-4 for a main meal with wine.Piasek Island, the church island with the cathedral is absolutely stunning, as hopefully the pictures show. The Old Square, as in most Polish cities, is the centre of life with lots of cafes, bars and restaurants surrounding a very dominating town hall - the largest in Europe.Over 70% of the city was destroyed in the war, with the old town fortunately being left realtively intact. So some areas of the city are 'communist concrete' but it is still definately worth a visit.
