I wasn’t born here, in Wrocław. My hometown is a little town in south-eastern Poland. But Wrocław was my love at first sight. I came here many years ago and immediately felt at home here. I don’t know if it was more because of people who live here, or due to the beauty of the town itself. I just knew I wanted to make my own home here. And so I did 🙂
I often catch myself thinking “Wow, it’s so beautiful here!” as I drive back home from work and pass the University buildings or Ostrów Tumski. I also love the hospitality of Wrocław. People here are really cordial and easy-going. That’s what my friends from other parts of Poland and Europe often say when they pay me a visit. Not convinced? Take a quick test of friendliness – try driving in Wrocław and then in Warsaw or in Krakow…
Summing up, I’ve found my happy place and put my roots here. But is Wrocław a place worth-recommending for young people, who are just at the beginning of their university studies or professional career? This is a question we tried to answer with my class during one of our English lessons. The task was to shoot a commercial advertising Wrocław as a youthful city.
Have a look at two videos my students have made and let us know what you think about Wrocław as a youthful city in the comments below.
