Urban jungle

There’s no better way to bring freshness and harmony into your life than to surround yourself with plants. Creating your own urban jungle in the city is not that difficult as you think.

Urban jungle and the love for plants seem to be everywhere lately. It is a huge trend in the interiors and design.  Tired of the cold and monochrome spaces, people prefer to be surrounded by the cosy and calm colours and shapes of the plants. There is a huge connection between love for plants and clean living and digital detoxing.

And indoor plants keep us reconnected to the nature. They have significant impact both on our physical and mental well being. They purify the air from toxins and release the oxygen back. Most of all they improve our sleep, decrease stress and anxiety levels and improve our cognitive performance.

Plants help us pursue a healthier and better lifestyle. While taking care of them we learn how to be patient again. In the world of instant gratification, plants make us slow down and wait for the result.

Creating your own urban jungle in the city is rather not difficult, but below are some helpful place that will get you started in Wroclaw.

Projekt Rośliny is a shop located on Kluczborska 3 Street. Two friends created this place out of their love for plants. They offer the advise on which plants to choose and what’s more how to take care of them. Their love and passion for plants is visible on each page of the book they wrote together, also called Projekt Rośliny.

Akademia Miejskiego Ogrodnika is a series of meetings and workshops held in Barbara on Świdnicka 8B Street. Each meeting consists of theoretical lecture about a chosen subject, connected with plants and also a practical workshop, where participants can check their knowledge in practice. What is even more useful, participants can share plants, seedlings and seeds between each other. Meetings are free of charge.

Last recommended place is Natura Rzeczy. It is a shop and a gallery filled with beautiful objects and plants.  Place promotes polish designers and organizes workshops that help participants discover their inner creativity and helps them find their inner peace.  One of the workshop teaches how to create our own forest in the jar.

It’s difficult only until you try it, so go on and create your own urban jungle in the city. Good luck!

Escape rooms – great way to spend time

 

Do you want to feel like the hero of an action movie? In an escape room you will experience it in one hundred and twenty percent. Here, you can treat yourself to a miniature 60-minute epinephrine with prolonged action.

What is the genesis of the escape rooms? For such a relatively recent phenomenon, it is accompanied by surprisingly hot arguments about genesis. There are those who point to TV sources – game shows such as “Fort Boyard” or “The Crystal Maze”, whose participants – a bit like fairy tales or computer game users – have to perform further tasks and solve puzzles to get the keys to the treasury. Others see the origins of escape rooms rather in computer games, which were designed on a similar basis and which have a much longer history than television programs. Still others draw attention to the similarity of escape rooms with “survival horror” films, whose protagonist also has to solve puzzles to survive. This is the case in “Resident Evil”, but above all in “Cube”, where there is another element – cooperation. Here are six people locked in a strange room, must cooperate with each other to escape life and get out.

In escape rooms you can see the need for older popculture products, which are difficult to satisfy today in everyday situations. – Our ancestors had to head well thousands of years ago to fire or get food. Those who advised, had profits – a position in the group or recognition of the opposite sex. Today we are looking for a substitute for similar challenges – hence jungle expeditions, climbing in the mountains or forest survival. Escape room is the most intimate, safe option. With the fact that – unlike in the jungle – physical strength is irrelevant here. What counts is the use of what we have in mind. In addition, escape rooms give us the possibility of group activity. With this every day in Polish conditions is poor – employers rarely offer us the opportunity to jointly solve problems, and we treat such challenges with extreme caution. We are individualists, we have little trust in others. A visit to the escape room allows you to break it. Suddenly, it turns out that we really like working together – hence the success of similar businesses.

In Wrocław, the boom for the escape room games began about five or six years ago. At the time, I had the pleasure, together with my friends, to participate in such a game in one of the first locations in the capital of Lower Silesia. at the moment the offer is rich. On the groupon.pl website you can find a lot of different escape rooms, with different available scenarios and climates.

prices are varied but for about 80 to 120 zlotys we can play with friends up to six people

Room Escape is still a fairly new type of fun during which we can learn to cooperate and, by the way, have fun. The rooms themselves are constantly evolving and changing so we can not complain about boredom and fund our intriguing experiences with our friends.
