A few Days in Poland – Part 2 of Wrocław

Poland 2015
If you did not see the view from the tower Wrocław Cathedral take a look at the last blog post. The full name is Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Wrocław. The first church was built in the mid 10th century at this place and later replaced by a larger basilican structure. That one was destroyed many times in many wars – lets hope this one will last a long time.

Only a minute away from the Cathedral is the Collegiate Church of the Holy Cross and St. Bartholomew. It was completed in autumn of the year 1287.

The next day in the afternoon my Poland Trip 2015 was almost over. Back into the small bus towards Opole

Wroclaw 2015
And changing into the big one at the eurobus station close to Opole. I wonder what people do when it rains. There is no roof and only one small toilet building. Looks like you have to stand with your bags in the rain for a while.

A few Days in Poland – Lodz Countryside and Wrocław

Poland 2015
The weekend house of Michal’s parents. Build out of wood far away from Lodz center. It is quite and when you sit here you have the feeling you are very far away from it all.

Even the longest Saturday afternoon ends and we got back to Sieradz since the Michal’s wanted to show me Wrocław on Sunday. When the food was served I was a bit puzzled. That is it? Nope – there was some soup later that was served in an extra container.

At last the beer was like it should be – cold and good.

That evening we got some beers and chilled at Michals place. My bed for the rest of the trip.

Trip to Wrocław

Sunday morning Michal and Iga picked us up and we drove to Wrocław

Wrocław is now the fourth-largest city in Poland. It has been part of the Kingdom of Poland, Bohemia, Hungary, the Austrian Empire, Prussia, and Germany. It became part of Poland in 1945 after the old border was moved to the west into former Germany.
