Last weekend we went to Wroclaw. In the comments section of an earlier post, a while back in fact, I had mentioned that I'd been to Wroclaw. I had not been there actually. I was confusing it with another city.
It is absolutely beautiful. It's main square is picturesque and the people there, as opposed to what we have found here in Krakow, are quite friendly and amiable. Lots of smiling faces and a more laid back attitude. These Krakowians are a serious bunch in comparison.
I didn't really want to go on this little mini trip but Martin insisted. It was an ok 24 hours. Traveling with children anywhere, for only one night, is a lot of work. I really hope to go back some time when we can take a long weekend because it deserves that, or longer. We didn't get to do too much because we are, of course, traveling with small children, so rather than see"all the things you must see in Wroclaw" we opted for the zoo and just strolling. They have the biggest zoo in the country. It was quite nice.
|A Unesco site. This is as close as we came to it.|
|That's about right.|
|Gnomes! They loved finding all the gnomes that the city is known for (among other things). They found 35 in all. I am sure there are many more.|
|They were knocking and fully expecting a little gnome to appear. We encouraged it.|
|In the mall waiting for Tata.|
|Not a statue.|
|The main square from the window of our apartment.|
|You could even see our car from the window of our apartment. Martin was relieved.|
|More main square. Isn't it lovely?!|
|The flights of stairs up to our apartment. Not at the very top, but near to it.|
That's all. No fancy ending or anything. Just some pics. from the weekend.
