If you like Jazz, you can spend time in some cool places in Wroclaw. There is a fantastic atmosphere there with fantastic sounds and an unusual atmosphere.
Below are a few suggestions where every fan of such climates will find something for themselves including live concerts.

Vertigo Jazz Club & Restaurant is the home of music. A place where her fans feel at home. The club – the only one in Wroclaw and the whole region, elegant, cozy and open to everyone – has been prepared with care and attention to every detail.

Collosseum Jazz Caffe

collosseum

Collosseum Jazz Caffe in Wroclaw is one of the few (if not the only) place called the Jazz club. Currently, there are two levels in the club, on one there is a balloon room, and on the other there is a concert hall. A great place to relax even during the week, because you can drink hot tea, or coffee and listen to good live music, Jam Session is often organized here. If we do not have the opportunity to bring our equipment, it is already in the club seeded and waiting for someone who will show what he can do.

Music Club LIVERPOOL

The place departs from Jazz climates but it is worth recommending. The club is located in the basement of a historic building, so it has its own natural decor and atmosphere, good acoustics and strong sound system. In Wrocław, the club has made a place for people who like strong sounds, but it also does not shy away from calmer events presenting music for connoisseurs, for example evenings with blues-rock, progressive and art-rock music, as well as jazz or funk. Liverpool became known in Poland from the organization of the gathering of fans – there were all-Poland The Cure, Depeche Mode, U2 and Rammstein gold rallies, which attracted crowds of fans from all over Poland.

Things to avoid, when you are in Wrocław.

There are thousands of reasons to visit Poland. For example Poland is home to 14 Unesco World Heritage Sites. The food is incredible and the history is gripping. One of the most interesting places in this country is Wrocław, which is full of history and great architecture.

It is really beautifull, and you should visit this city, but there is few things that you have to aviod, when you are in Wrocław (or in Poland). Let’s check them out.

Number one: Don’t jaywalk!

In some countries they may not be that big deal to cross the street anywhere it seems convenient, but in Poland you can even pay a fine. So if you don’t want to pay even 500 złoty, which is about 130$, for walking across the streat, you should be careful.

Number two: Don’t wear shoes inside a Polish home.

It changes, but when you see, that youre host doesn’t wear shoes, you should do that too, you shouldn’t wear youre shoes in the house, because it can be rude that way. It is like an old tradition and a lot of young people chenges their mind about that, but it is still really popular to not wear shoes at home. So you have to be careful about that.

Number three: Don’t skip out on learning few words in Polish.

It is not necessary but the thing is, that we like, when you know even a few words in our language, it really opens the door. We learn a lot of languages, to help tourist, and we thing, that is really sweet, when people from abroad, try to speak polish, even it is only something like dziękuje. And be calm, you don’t have to be perfect. We are kinda shy people, so this is what’s really open us up.

Number four: Don’t worry about the money.

Poland is extremely affordable country so you shouldn’t be worry that you can spend too much money. It is not expencive pleace to be, that means that you can do anything, eat anything you like, go anywhere you like and anjoy Wrocław’s atractions and I can swear to you, that you don’t spend too much money. Also, going to the museum, is really affordable, as well and we have them a lot, so you should try them all! So it is nice pleace to check out.

Number five: Don’t drink in public places.

You can even get arrested or pay a fine for drinking in public places. You can eat and drink at the restaurant and at the bar, no problem. But if you wanna take some alcohol and go to a park and drink trere, with youre friends, you can get in troubles with the cops, so make sure, you do not drink in publicly.

Number six: Don’t forget to tip.

Usually it is about ten percent of this, what you pay. Ten or fifteen.But you should look at the menu and some restaurants already put that ten percent in there and it is already included. But like I said before, it is kinda cheap place, so don’t be scared, that you will pay a lot for all dinner. And don’t forget, when you pay by cash, you should put youre money, in that little thing in which you get youre receipt and leave tip in there. You also should say thank you or keep the change.

Number seven: Don’t be late.

The Poles are really on time kinda people. If you are gonna be late make sure you are gonna call or send a message, to wont make your friend angry. It is kinda rude, to be late with saying nothing. So make sure, that you are on time.

And last but not least! You should came to Wrocław to check this city out.

Great Polish references

Throughout history there have been many people who have made history worldwide to excel in their work and lead an exemplary life.
Many of them are of Polish origin:

 

In Art:   Stanisław Wyspiański

Stanisław Wyspiański (January 15, 1869, Kraków – November 28, 1907, Kraków), was one of the most versatile and outstanding artists of his time, in Europe, as this painter, architect and cabinetmaker, was also a playwright Polish very influential.

 

Born in Krakow, Stanisław Wyspiański was the son of Franciszek Wyspiański and Maria Rogowska (who died of tuberculosis in 1876). His father was a sculptor without reputation, of bourgeois origin, with problems of alcoholism, and it is not known if he promoted the first steps of his son. Of course, Stanisław, when adopted by Joanna Stankiewiczowa and her husband, who had contacts with artists, was able to study painting, literature and history with important figures of Krakow’s life.

 

Sport: Robert Lewandowski

 

Born in Krakow, Stanisław Wyspiański was the son of Franciszek Wyspiański and Maria Rogowska (who died of tuberculosis in 1876). His father was a sculptor without reputation, of bourgeois origin, with problems of alcoholism, and it is not known if he promoted the first steps of his son. Of course, Stanisław, when adopted by Joanna Stankiewiczowa and her husband, who had contacts with artists, was able to study painting, literature and history with important figures of Krakow’s life.

After being the top scorer of the third and second division of Polish football with the Znicz Pruszków, he moved to the First Division Lech Poznań team, where he won the Ekstraklasa 2009-10 and was also the top scorer of the maximum Polish soccer category .

In 2010, he was transferred to the German Borussia Dortmund run by Jürgen Klopp for 4.5 million euros, where he won several titles including two consecutive Bundesliga. Before the start of the 2014-15 season, he signed for what had been a direct rival for Dortmund in recent seasons, Bayern Munich, with which he won the Bundesliga 2014-15 in his first season.

 

Music: Chopin

 

Frédéric Chopin was born in the village of Żelazowa Wola, in the voivodeship of Mazovia, 60 kilometers from Warsaw in central Poland, on a small estate owned by Count Skarbek, who was part of the Grand Duchy of Warsaw. He received the name of Fryderyk Franciszek Chopin.

He was a Polish composer and virtuous considered one of the most important in history and one of the greatest representatives of musical Romanticism. His perfect technique, his stylistic refinement and his harmonic elaboration have been compared historically, for his lasting influence in the music of later times, with those of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, Johannes Brahms or Franz Liszt.

 

in Religion: Juan Pablo II

John Paul II (in Latin: Ioannes Paulus II), 4 of secular name Karol Józef Wojtyła5 (Wadowice, Poland, May 18, 1920-Vatican City, April 2, 2005), was Pope 264 of the Church Catholic and sovereign of the Vatican City from October 16, 1978 until his death in 2005. He was canonized in 2014, during the pontificate of Francisco.

Having been auxiliary bishop (since 1958) and archbishop of Krakow (since 1962), he became the first Polish pope in history, and in the first non-Italian since 1523. His pontificate of almost 27 years was the third longest in the history of the Catholic Church, after that of St. Peter (it is believed that between 34 and 37 years, although its exact duration is difficult to determine) and that of Pius IX (31 years). John Paul II was hailed as one of the most influential leaders of the twentieth century, remembered especially for being one of the main symbols of anti-communism, 8 and for his fight against the expansion of Marxism in places like Latin America, where he fought energetically to the known movement as the theology of liberation, with the help of his right hand and ultimately his successor, Joseph Ratzinger.
