The guide book suggested that day’s could be lost walking round the old streets of Wroclaw.
Well we didn’t spend days on it but we tramped through a good mileage of those streets this morning and early afternoon before finishing up for a lunch outside in a restaurant called Konspira, named in supper of the Solidarity movement. The menu contained a potted history of the resistance against communist rule and each dish was named for an aspect of it.
So I ate Wroclaw Konspirator’s Dinner Set – otherwise grilled pork neck with garlic butter served with homemade kopytka and fried cabbage. It was very good particularly when followed by a small cupped glass of plum brandy which brought tears to my eyes it was so potent.
Wroclaw itself is a mixture of the medieval centre which was flattened during the War and has since been rebuilt and then outside of the centre streets of late nineteenth early twentieth century apartment blocks that seemed to have survived the War but are now starting to crumble and fall apart. There has also been some interesting looking graffiti.
