Wroclaw is a city that could use a fresh coat of paint. A great deal of the buildings are beautiful - just a little scuffed up. As we wandered out into the area around the center (which is quite spiffy), we were amazed at how many very pretty facades there were. This is going to be a city famous for its looks - once it freshens itself up.
Wroclaw is, surprisingly, the fourth largest city in Poland and it has its share of tourists. Of course, it's not touristy so much as tourist accessible - this is Poland, after all, not Italy. I feel as though they are hoping for tourists, instead of actually hosting them. We haven't heard many people speaking English, but most people we've talked to know how to speak English.
