Hello! Today I thought I will give you a glimpse of my hometown, Wroclaw. It’s Poland’s fifth biggest city. It has the most amazing history–if you’re a history afficionado try Norman Davies’ engaging Microcosm: A Portrait of a Central European City to learn about Wroclaw’s multicultural and dramatic tales over centuries. I’ve lived in five cities, four countries and on two continents but recently came to a conclusion that I like my hometown best. In June we will host soccer games UEFA EURO 2012 and Wroclaw won the competition to become European Capital of Culture, something we’re terribly proud of. Paris, Florence, Athens, Amsterdam, Dublin, Cracow, MAdrid, Lisbon, Berlin, Copenhagen, Graz, Istanbul, Vilnius, among others had been chosen in the past as European Capitals of Culture, so we’re in splendid company. Just to give you an idea what it’s like here:

P.S. Some musical pleasure for your ears: Me Myself and I, a band from Wrocław that is now touring the US. Enjoy!
P.P.S. You should come visit me in Wrocław. Otherwise you can find me on Twitter, Pinterest, LibraryThing, and here.0
