Lower Silesia’s Heart: Part 1

While relaxing in Wroclaw’s Rynek (market square) and enjoying the last of my espresso, I find myself reflecting on why this city is known as the ‘Meeting Place’.

I’ve heard a variety of explanations volunteered. There’s the geographical: Wroclaw’s location at the point where the Odra River meets the Sudety Mountains and the Silesian Lowlands. There’s the cultural and historical: Wroclaw’s assembly of multicultural foundations and post-WWII population transfers. But there’s also the personal: Wroclaw’s magnetism is compelling. This magnetism extends into the beautiful and diverse region of Lower Silesia region; a region which I explore by bicycle each year with a group of other adventure-seeking characters.

Now I know that Wroclaw, or even Poland, may not be the first place you’d think of travelling to for a cycling holiday. You’d probably think France … or Italy … or China. But for cyclists with their saddles at the right height, it’s an experience that will surprise, enchant, and enrich.
