    This is Wrocław - Poland

    Located in the southwest part of Poland you will find the city of Wroclaw. It's a nice place with a lot of happy people, and during 2016 it is also the culture capital of EU.

    Here are some quick walk-around-pictures from this week.

    There are a lot of churches in the town.

    You can find a lot of these dwarfs in the city center. This one is withdrawing some money from an ATM-machine.

    A market of flowers.


    This walk is only around the city center.

    Old and new.

    You probably don't want to visit this club...

    M&S is probably not a typical Polish shop.



      Apparently one of the most popular restaurants in town.

      A quite ordinary shop in a bit different location.



        The back yard of the university.

        Trams are a part of the city.



          Bicycle support.

          Come and play.

          More back streets.




            A small chair.

            A modern light-rail.

            The university again.

            This was all, but you might have some more?


              Love those Tommi. Really atmospheric.

              What's the story behind the gnome and the cash machine?

                There are several hundred dwarfs around the city doing lots of fun and strange things.
                The first one was more of a regular statue of a dwarf, raised in 2001 to remember the anti-communist movement "Orange alternative". Now there are more and more located around the town, most outside different shops and cafes.

              Thanks for the explanation Tommi. That's rather a nice way of commemorating something like that.




                Very moodful pictures, i would certainly like to see more. Wroclaw is only about 100km away from the place in CZ, where i am very often and there are similarities. There were not so huge destroyments during WW2 and also not so many new buildings erected in the ugly 60ies and 70ies like in German surroundings, so it is a very nice scenery. The modern tramway is CZ origin, you can spot the Skoda sign on the front. These are also common in Prague.

                  Your night shots are as always, superb. Clear, sharp focus and perfectly composed.

                    Thank you all for the comments!
                    Since these are tourist photos, they were taken with a tourist camera kit: Canon 550D + EF-S 18-55!
                    Of course no tripod or monopod, but I actually had a neckstrap - tourist cameras always have one...
