my place

  
When you live in one place for 11 years, you can really forget why you made that choice about staying there.
But last week, when my younger sister Margot came to Wroclaw (link) for few days, I remembered. 
We spent all the time visiting historic buildings, museums, beautiful places.
And ofc we danced, ate great food, drank on Slodowa Island ;)
I Wroclove!
  
The Market Square - one of the largest markets in Europe (208 x 173 m)

Both pictures taken from terrace on the tower of the church Under the Call of Saint Elizabeth (link)
- more than 300 steps to climb. Ufffff...

In Ossolineum (Tenement Under the Gold Sun) we saw exhibition (link) of prizes received by Andrzej Wajda.

Till 31. August 2010 you have chance to see Oscar live.
And try how it looks like with your hand (on the glass) ;)


We took about 500 photos, but I show you only few of them (my favourites).

the Statue of John Nepomucen (link)

Weathercock on the Collegiate of Saint Cross Church (link) - the church with two levels.
(unfortunately I've never been there inside - on any level)

      Main entrance to Archsee (link)
On the left side is lion figure (you can see part of it) and on the right side - eagle figure.
There is nice legend about it:
if a lonely woman wants to get to know her future beloved, she should touch the lion, 
while the lonely man should do the other way round.

... and talking about love...
...the Tumski Bridge (link) - first love bridge in Wroclaw :)

  1. niejednokrotnie słyszałam, że Wrocław to bajeczne miejsce, jednak byłam tam tylko przejazdem. Muszę to miasto koniecznie odwiedzić!:)
