Slodowa Island / Malt Island

If you stay in Wroclaw for more than few days, you have to see Slodowa Island.

It is located in the center of Wroclaw. Slodowa Island is not associated with any major historical event. From the fifteenth century there were malt houses (“malt” in polish means “słód” – this is why this island is called, obviously, “Malt Island”), but now there are not even their remains. You can ask: So why should I go there?

The answer is: Slodowa Island is a cult meeting place (mainly for students) in Wroclaw.

From October to mid-March the island is calm and is mainly used for walking, running or cycling – if you don’t believe me, there are some pictures :).

However, since March it is full of young people laughing, playing the guitar, singing and playing games. Every year, March 21 (first day of spring, but also: truant day), young people gather on Slodowa Island to inaugurate the new season of evening meetings in this place.

From this day until the first cold nights, the island is full of laughter, singing, beer (important information below!) and games every evening.

People on Slodowa Island play mainly:

  • freesbee
  • badminton
  • football tricks
  • flanks (oh, you HAVE to try flanks 😉 ).

Słodowa Island is also a place where many concerts take place.

The biggest music event organized here is “Majówka” (1-3 May), during which there are the biggest stars of Polish rock. A few times there was also beaten “Guinness Guitar Record” in the number of people playing the same song on the guitar at the same time.

I can write about the island for a long time, but the most important thing is: you should see it with your own eyes and feel the atmosphere there 🙂

_________

Let’s face it: full of people likes to drink some beer on Slodowa Island. IS THIS LEGAL? Well, for several years you can’t drink alcohol in public places in Poland. However, student self-governments negotiate with the city authorities every year that they can exclude the Malt Island from this ban. Remember: you are opening beer at your own risk! 🙂

5 reasons to move to Wroclaw

5 reasons to move to Wroclaw

5 Ws: When, where, what, why, Wroclaw. One story.

The story of one gypsy girl, who’s looking for HER place in this world, or 5 reasons to move to Wroclaw.

1. When

Let’s start it from the beginning. A year ago I moved. Again. It was spontaneous. As always. I lived in Asia. In a 14-million city named Guangzhou. I’ve been staying there for 4 years, and was planning to stay there for another 4 years or more. But… Well, we all have this “but” from time to time. For me that “but” was the edge. I literally left everything, bought a one-way ticket and said “goodbye” to my 4-year Asian life.

5 reasons to move to Wroclaw

2. Where

I moved, and moved, and moved. First it was Dubai. An amazing city, full of sand, money and oil. And with the same feeling of loneliness as in China.

Then it was Ukraine. But staying there for a few months, I realised that I DON’T want to live there anymore.

Next, came Poland. So here we stop for a while, because this is where I am at the present. In the city of Wroclaw. And I like it. This is the first of 5 reasons to move to Wroclaw.

3. What

What was the second of 5 reasons to move to Wroclaw? I became a student. Again. In the age of 27. With two Master’s degrees. Well, frankly speaking, it wasn’t the plan for my future life, I was spontaneous as always.

For Ukrainians, Poland is a way to stay in EU legally and without preparing too many documents. This is our “bridge” to Western Europe. And to be honest, Europe suits us more than Asia, I believe because of the similar mentality. And this is number three of 5 reasons to move to Wroclaw (or another EU city).

4. Why

Well, it’s difficult to say. This is the question I ask myself all the time. And I don’t know the answer.

I like to travel. I’m addicted to new emotions.  Of course, “travelling” and “moving” are not the same things. So, moving from country to country, from part of the world to another, I’m looking for a place, where I could settle down. The place, where I could feel safety, appeasement and happiness. I think, I could sacrifice many thing to find MY place. One more of 5 reasons to move to Wroclaw, isn’t it?

5. Wroclaw

I was afraid to move here. Like a city citizen is afraid of moving to a village. You can’t imagine how it is to move from a 14-million city to a “city”, that has 600 thousands people. 14 000 000 and 600 000. So well, I was sarcastic a bit calling Wroclaw “city”, for me it sounded like a village.

But Wroclaw swept me off my feet. Totally. I fell in love with this city. I fell in love with its narrow streets, its impromptness, its affability. Wroclaw combines the history and the technologies, the “old” and the “new”. It made me speechless from the very beginning. And these are my 5 reasons to move to Wroclaw.

5 reasons to move to Wroclaw

And maybe one day it’ll become a place, where I’d like to settle down…

 

Wroclaw for expats – inspirations and lifestyle

Wroclaw for expats

Wroclaw for expats is very interesting city with a lot of opportunities.  Each of us is the creator of our life and Wrocław is a great place to start

Hi! My name is Ivanna, I am 21 and I want to tell you where I have found my inspiration. As everyone has understood from the title of my blog, I live in Wroclaw. I want to tell you about Wroclaw for expats – the best place I ever found abroad.

  • Wroclaw is the largest city in western Poland.
  • The population of the city is more than 600.000 .

There are a lot of foreigners and students from all over the world. It is a university city with many well-known universities such as the University of Wroclaw, the Wroclaw University of Technology and other famous institutions, all of which enjoy an enviable reputation in Poland and abroad.

This is my 5th year here. And you know, I am not bored at all. Wroclaw has a great history. The history of the city dates back a thousand years, and combines almost all religions and cultures of Europe. At various times, it has been part of:

  • Poland,
  • Bohemia,
  • Prussia,
  • Germany.

It became part of Poland in 1945 as a result of the border changes after the Second World War. The city is new and old at the same time. This place is an alive history, which u can touch and feel.

Wroclaw for expats – just try!

The next question, which has already existed in your mind is :”What she’s doing in this city?”. I came here when I was 17 to get higher education. So I am a student, and i am from Ukraine. The first problem which all expats met abroad is language barier. For me it also was a problem to speak polish, but Wrocław for expats is an friendly city where many people speak different languages and are very helpful. So during 1 year in Wrocław I have learned polish. More information about how to learn polish for expats I am going to tell you in my next text.

In 2016 i have graduated Wroclaw School of Banking(WSB) and got B.A. of political science. And these student years run as fast as a mouse from a hungry cat. So in 2017 I have entered the University of Lower Silesia (DSW) to become M.A. and to enjoy my student life next 2 years. Now mouse is far from cat, at least for 2 years. I like to be a student, to meet new people, to learn something new. And I like to be a student in Wroclaw. Why? Because Wroclaw for expats is best. When i have got my bachelor degree i was feeling lost. I didn’t know what to do in my life. I even was thinking about moving from Wroclaw. But this city hasn’t let me go. I am thankful for that. Wroclaw don’t allow me to feel depressed, because there are many opportunities, smart people, places to go. No depression only inspiration.

My plans as a foreigner

I am in love with Wrocław. My plan in future is to live here. For the nearest future I want to have got my M.A. degree in the University of Lower Silesia and find good job in field of my specialization. Also as usual girl, I am planing to build family and have children, with my boyfriend, whom I met here. Wrocław for expats is the city of love, new people, dreams which becoming real here. I as a foreigner want to share with you my experience and show that every expat could be happy here.There everyone will find something useful and interesting, everyone will find here their own way of inspiration. Come to Wroclaw – be inspired!
