Wroclove

We left Castle Czocha this morning, and headed east.  Just before lunch, we stopped in the charming city of Wroclaw, which, in German times, was known as Breslau.  There appeared to be not only one town square but two.  We ate lunch, and found more people have a knowledge of English in the bigger Polish cities.  
Most people who have visited Wroclaw will tell you it's really nice.  We came to this city, pronounced 'vrotswov', for the first time.  We agree.
Stalls with food and souvenirs lined one of the squares.  One stall sold fridge magnets advertising the city - one magnet aptly changed the city's name to 'Wroclove'.
Many unusual things could be seen....
....like this little wind mill...
...depicting local culture...
...for special tastes...
...for the mass market....
...or for those who want to indulge.
Like every other European city, Wroclaw has churches...
...but it also has a beach right in the middle of the town square.
Wroclaw, which is the capital city of the Lower Silesian region, also has cultural designs in its pavements.
At first, we thought the reference to dwarves in the above menu was terribly politically incorrect.  Then we realised that somehow dwarves have a place in local culture....
...like in this picture here.
