There’s never enough time in the day. You end up dashing down the streets like there’s no tomorrow. You gaze absently down at the pavement. You only find mysteries and secret treasures in thrillers. So for goodness sake, slow down, pause, take your eyes off that pavement, and look up.
You won’t regret it. At least in Wrocław you won’t.
Here’s a city where you will come across Roman Legionaries, frivolous goddesses and pretty peacocks. You will witness the son of the city patrician being born. You will see how angels express deep affection towards one another. You will find out that ancient Egyptians used phones, that women in the Victorian era did not wear corsets, and that dwarfs are in fact anarchists and have no comprehension of embarrassment.
Wrocław used to be known as the flower of Europe, and despite all the calamity and pain it has experienced, has always been able to recover and blossom afresh. The city’s biggest attribute is its residents: it has always attracted interesting people – brave, wise individuals with imagination – who have strived for success and are able to achieve it. In times of combat they could fight for their city, and in times of tranquillity would take care and make it the best place to live.
