Where to play Board Games in Wroclaw

Playing board games is one of the more popular activities around the world, fortunately this culture is steadily growing in Poland for several of years now, and Wroclaw is no exception. So what to do if You are in the capital of Lower Silesia, and want to spend some time with dice, cards, and meepels? Here is a quick guide to most of the options open for people who want to play some games. Be that individually in the city, at home, or at various board game  in Wroclaw meetings.

There are several options for people that want to spend their time with a board on their table, ranging from pubs and organized meetings to board game rentals if You prefer to play games in home. Note that currently many pubs in the city have a copy of Monopoly, or Scrabble. But if You, dear reader, are interested in some more complicated games I will try to give You some options on where and when to go.

HEX Board Game Café – Dubuois 33/35b

Hex Cafe is hard to find, but it is worth it, You need to pass this gate to reach it

And we are starting with a pub that is focused on board games. Hex is located in a back alley, and can be a little hard to find for the first time, but it is worth the search.

The choice is huge, so if You don’t have Your collection with You is the ideal place to go.  Drinks wise You can have Your warm drinks like coffee and  tea, colder beverages like water, juice, lemonade or coke are also available. As for something with alcohol there is a good choice of craft beers in addition to normal beer and drinks. As far as snacks go You can count on peanuts, toasts, or hot dogs to name just a few. Although You can find a table walking in from the street I highly recommend reserving one, as this is a very popular place, and there are many special events organized by the owners. Also don’t forget some sort of ID because it could be needed to borrow a game at the bar.

When You reach it there is plenty of room for gaming

At every location there is a place to pick up a game from the library and play it on the spot for free. You can bring Your own game and take a free table, there are special events organized by the store, as well as painting lessons and miniature gaming. But the thing that makes Planszoweczka stand out is the rental system. If You fancy to play some games at home You can rent them for 3 days paying a couple of zlotys for it (the prices vary but are usually at most 10% of the games shelf price). With more than 500 titles in the library You have lot of games to choose from ranging from kids and party games, to heavy euro or ameri style titles.

Where to go for a short vacation trip from Wrocław?

http://sokolowsko.info/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/sokolowsko_0361-600×400.jpg

The city is nice but hey! It is summer, time for a trip.
If You are searching for a little rest, nature,mountains, art and music-  Sokołowsko might be great place for You. It is not that far from Wrocław. You only need two days off,  backpack and a train ticket. Oh, and friends to share great moments with.

HISTORY OF SOKOŁOWSKO

Until the mid-nineteenth century  Goerbersdorf- a small mountain village did not differ in any way from other villages belonging to the Hochbergs. In 1845, countess von Colomb came here for a vacation. She was enchanted by the landscape and convinced by the uniqueness of the place so she persuaded her brother-in-law  Dr Hermann Brehmer
to create a health resort there. In 1945, in honor of the count’s friendship with Professor Alfred Sokołowski, the village received a new name – Sokołowsko.
In 1855 Sokołowsko became a place of the world’s first specialist tuberculosis sanatorium. After World War II, the spa was reclassified from the tuberculosis profile to the treatment profile for respiratory diseases. In the following years, attempts were made to create a Provincial Winter Sports Center. Unfortunatelly it turned out to be a costly undertaking and the implementation has never been completed.
In October 2005, the inhabitants of Sokołowsko heard an explosion,
a moment later the building was consumed by a fire. The fire burned the whole roof of the sanatorium building. The wooden elements disappeared, the vaults collapsed, the wall and ceiling paintings were burned.
A new, surprising chapter in the history of Sokołowsko was the purchase of the object by the Contemporary Art Foundation, which main goal was to rebuild the burned Sanatorium of Dr. Brehmer and create the International Laboratory of Culture there.

NEW LIFE OF SOKOŁOWSKO WITH “IN SITU” FOUNDATION

In Situ Foundation, which means “in place” was founded in 2004 in Podkowa Leśna by artists Bożenna Biskupska and Zygmunt Rytka. “In situ is an activity in a place that, no matter where it is located, can become an art space. In Situ initiates the possibility of creation of infinite permutations, number of solutions and searches, creates
a field and the conditions for action and the interpenetration of time, space, people and various areas, and above all, create zones for a free creative and scientific research process.”- tells Bożenna BiskupskaIn 2012, the headquarters from Warsaw were moved to Sokołowsko. Along with the new president, Zuzanna Fogtt, new goals have been defined: “Creating space for the implementation of international artistic projects, diverse and interdisciplinary creative activities, research, meetings, confronting views, exchanges and experiences, as well as popularizing innovative artistic attitudes.”

ACTIVITIES, ART, FESTIVALS

The cyclical activities of the In Situ foundation include: Ephesus Art Festival Konteksty/The Contexts, Hommage à Kieślowski, Sanatorium Dźwięku/ Sound Sanatorium.

SOUND SANATORIUM

In Sokołowsko, postmodern chaos arose from a mixture of Neo-Gothic and Art Nouveau buildings, and the fauna and flora of the mountain landscapes proved to be the perfect basis for the experimental music festival – Sanatorium Dźwięku – a festival created by Zuzanna Fogtt and Gerard Lebik. The festival presents a wide spectrum of musical forms of the XX / XXI century – concerts, realizations from the border of sound art, interdisciplinary performance. The festival takes place in Health Kinoteatre in Sokołowiec, in the Multimedia Hall, Spa Park, but also within the ruins of the nineteenth-century sanatorium. Every year, the festival attracts hundreds of music lovers from around the world. The fifth edition of the festival did not receive funding from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, therefore the foundation conducts a fundraising campaign from voluntary donors, so that this year the patients could come to the music session to the Sanatorium Dźwięku.

HOMMAGE A KIEŚLOWSKI

Three-day celebration for the greatest cinema enthusiasts, especially Kieślowski’s films, but also those “after Kieślowski”, ie debutants, students of film schools, directors and directors who created after 2000. Away from the urban momentum Sokołowsko becomes a meeting place for film creators and recipients, it gives the opportunity to meet famous actors, directors and interact with them in the extraordinary beauty of landscapes “For three festival days, we propose discussions, introductions to films referring to the spirit of the DKF and promoting cinema as a place to broaden the horizons of thought, putting into question our own, often unfair or outdated opinions.”. The festival program is divided into three parts. Documentary cinema “Without fiction”, a European feature film “Re: Interpretations” and Kieślowski’s films, meaning “Hommage and Kieślowski.” Film screenings are intertwined with a discussion between film scientists, philosophers, filmmakers and the audience. Kieślowski said: “Live and look carefully!”

The festival realizes this idea.

THE CONTEXTS

Festival of Ephemeral Art. Performance art festival. With this project, the In Situ foundation proves once again that art can be at the fingertips of every human being. Periodically the performers of the performance and its recipients gather in Sokołowsko.They are looking for the answer to the question: “Is art a foreign body in society or maybe its integral element? ” Apart from the world-famous artists during the Konteksty Festival, there will also be a place for the” Open Platform “, a section enabling young artists to present their realizations.

Vegan food in Wroclaw

In the last few years, Wrocław has changed instantly . There are a lot of new bars, pubs and even vegan shop that have opened up. Not only the number of vegetable spots, but also their diversity and the exceptional quality of served food delights. Veganism is getting more and more fashonable nowadays. Here are a few suggestions that any potential customer can confirm in the belief that it is worth looking into these places because of this type of vegan food in Wroclaw.

The first suggestion is food at the Żyzna restaurant on Nożownicza 37 Street in Wrocław. This is a top of the class vegetable bistro- let’s try to imagine that. The cousine surprises even more with creative, inspiring and refined meals in the smallest detail. Every two weeks you can find seasonal dishes with the best ingredients. In the menu you can find: marinated watermelon (in summer); dumplings with plums, thyme and tofu (in autumn) and steaks of celery and potato puree (in winter). This is one of the most unique places in Wroclaw and even all over Poland. The only drawback is better to come to Żyzna ealier or before coming to call, because in the evening there may not be all the dishes. It presents that the local food is delicious and also fresh.

Another but also strong suggestion is Wilk Syty on Trzebnicka 3 we Wrocławiu. This is a newly created place. In a short time thousands of Wroclawians became addicted to each other. Here you will find classic dishes that have been vegan and then flavored with an amazing imagination’s staff. It’s a great place for dinner with parents. It’s possible that especially fathers and uncles can change their minds after visit in this kind of place. The local dishes from seitan are Wroclaw export: vegan bacon, meatballs, burgers, and even greaves on potato dumplings.In spite of meals, customers can eat here some of the best vegan cakes in Poland – a rolling poppy seed cake with meringue.

Vegan food in Wroclaw

The last proposition is Vega Restaurant which is located on Rynek 27a we Wrocławiu. This place can not be missing in any vegan guide around Wroclaw and should be heard about it all over Poland. This is the oldest vegetarian bar in Poland, which has been operating since 1987 in the middle of the Town Hall in Wroclaw! As if these attractions were not enough, VEGA changed the decoration four years ago and became a completely vegan place and still feeds just as well. At lunchtime you can see a lot of workers and employees of the Town Hall, who come to visit. The menu on the ground floor is close to grandma’s dinners and also traditional cuisine of milk bars.There are also meaty soups, salads and compote on the menu. Depending on what you want, you can sit either on the ground floor or on the first floor.

Vozilla Electric Cars Rental in Wrocław

Background of cars usage

In western Europe the number of cars has increased by 130% in the last 40 years. 100% increase took place in the 20 years between 1980 and 2000. Now the rate of increase is lower, sign that saturation is nearing, but trips are becoming longer and more frequent.

In developing economies, the rate of increase of the number of cars is often close to 10% per annum, which means a doubling every 7–8 years. It seems that we are witnessing a collective infatuation for cars that borders with addiction. Indeed, they are the most convenient (for the user) means of transportation ever devised, but the social cost associated is huge.

Issue

Every car need to be parked at either side of their trip. European cities are struggling to fulfill this need – and here is a field for companies to improve this situation.

Solution

So here we have initiatives like Vozilla in Wrocław which is offering short term (by minutes) rental of electric cars (over 200 cars in Wroclaw) which can be parked in special areas in city centre (green envelope mark). The charge is 1PLN per minute of the rental service.

The first thing the customer has to do is download a special app and register in the service. The app is necessary for you to find the closest vehicle and book it with your smartphone. Then you may access the car where the previous user or the operator have left it. The rental service is provided across the entire administrative area of Wrocław. Users are allowed to leave Wrocław. However, to return the car you are also obliged to return to the city. You can leave your car at any generally accessible car park.

Additionally, Vozilla’s cars are similar to cabs in that they are authorized to access bus lanes and zones with restricted access for combustion engine vehicles. Vozilla cars are authorised to use the following bus lanes: ul Reymonta/Pomorska, Podwale, Trzebnicka, Piłsudskiego, pl Teatralny, św Jadwigi, Traugutta, Jedności Narodowej, Szewska, Robotnicza.
