Breslau Holidays

Yesterday evening I returned from a short winter holidays, which I spent in Wroclaw (Breslau) – a city in Silesia (southwestern part of Poland) where I was born and used to live in for the first four years of my life.

Even before the train stopped at the station, I fell in love with the city… again. I sensed a different “scent” in the air and I don’t mean the smell of the air itself (I don’t want to investigate how clean or dirty the air there is). The city differs from Warsaw very much. It is much calmer and more pleasant.

During my short stay I managed to see the place where I used to live when I was little, place where my parents used to work and I found time to pay visit to my family in Wroclaw. I didn’t manage to see everything I wanted – frosty weather and a rising demand of my organism to rest a little caused that I didn’t see the zoo and I didn’t manage to take a closer look at the centre of the city.

Unfortunately because of bad weather conditions my journey home extended a little and I feel quite tired now (after spending 7 hours in a train).

Below I attach few photos of the city. Later I will post some photos taken during my trip to Wroclaw.

    Have been searching to match my mother’s water color of a Breslau building. Thank you for your photo, I finally got a match.

    Have not had the courage to visit that city considering my memories.
