Roller skating? Yes, it is the “new old” thing in and around Wrocław

”You can’t buy happiness but you can buy roller skates and that’s pretty much the same thing”
(Anonymous)

With more and more fancy skating shoes in sports shops  and new skate parks being built it seems that the roller skating is back in town again. Since there are many parents who used to skate quite well and now want their children to get to know the feeling of pleasure skating can give you, more and more people are learning how to skate professionally. And at this time of the year sun is still spoiling us with opportunities to spend our time outdoors. If you haven’t done it already now is the best season to dust off your roller blades and skating boards.  So, if you’re looking for the best places to roller skate, look no further. Me and my little son have done all of the heavy lifting (you’re welcome) and found the most unique places to go roller skating in and around Wrocław.
