The most frequently used business model in Wrocław is a salon offering a wide range of treatments, instead of one profiled activity.

Hence the frequent situation of combining a beauty salon with services hairdressers either under the name of one owner or on the principles of mutual recommendation and team work.

Where to eat the best Ramen in Wroclaw – PANda Ramen

But…What is Ramen?

Due the international popularity of this unique Japanese soup in past few years, It became easier to find restaurants that serve this special. Right now, every big city has at least one restaurant that serve it. Ramen quickly became so called “comfort food” due its unique combination of rich soup and almost a full meal in one bowl. Every Ramen is different, all depends on the ingredients that you use for it. Broth can be rich and meaty, light and delicate or even completely vegan, all depends on the way you prepare it. Another thing that can differentiate ramens is what “floats” in your soup. Every ramen shop can use completely different pasta, some of them are even making their own. Also, they can serve different toppings on their soup, so it opens doors of countless combinations of tastes.

Ramen in Wroclaw? Where?

Here in Wroclaw we have at lest few interesting places to visit if you want to try Ramen. But this time I’m gonna focus on one specific place, which I find the best for first-time ramen experience.

First Place I would recommend to everybody who want to try it for the first time, it also my favorite place from all, it’s PANda Ramen. It’s almost perfect kind of westernized Ramen shop. First, they serve few kinds of Ramen here. On their standard menu they serve 3 kinds of soup, rich (on meat base), light (also on meat base but different) and Vegan. Besides that they have 3 other kinds of ramen soup that are serve in specific days of the week. For example, on Tuesday and Wednesday they have “PANda curry” which is spicy, curry based broth. Every Soup comes in 2 sizes, small for around 20 zlotych, and big for around 30 zlotych. While ordering, you can choose extra toppings for your soup. First 3 toppings are included in the price, next ones are paid extra. But hey! You can take as much as you want!

Besides soup, they also serve  3 kinds of Gyoza dumplings and all kinds of Asian salads like kimchi or gomma wakame . If you feel extra hungry, you can  order full lunche set. The location is also great. This ramen shop is in the center of old town, 2 minutes from the centre and it’s open for every day.

Not feeling so good today? Wanna stay at home? Good news, PANda ramen (and it’s sister restaurant, PANda Sushi) is delivering tasty soup directly to your doorstep. I highly recommend visiting this place if you want to at least try this new “comfort food” trend yourself!

Ostrow Tumski – in the footsteps of the old town

Ostrow Tumski

Wrocław is famous not only for its many bridges

But also for its magnificent architecture and historic sites. One of them is Ostrow Tumski, which is the oldest historic part of Wrocław. Interestingly, a well-known Polish astronomer Mikołaj Kopernik lived there for several years.

Ostrow Tumski

impresses with its views, cathedrals, and a great place for walks along the Oder.

  • Legends say that Wrocław originates from Ostrow Tumski due to its location in the area of ​​crossings on the Oder.
  • Interestingly, there is a Gothic archcathedral on it. John the Baptist, called the “mother of churches” of Lower Silesia.
  • Rebuilt after the II World War, it impresses and at the same time is a great vantage point for Wrocław.
  • Gothic chapels, rich decorations and unique architecture intrigue and attract not only tourists.

The Archdiocesan Museumin Wroclaw

Is the oldest museum in Wrocław, deserves an interest. The collections contain the most valuable and the most beautiful mementos of sacred art.

Immediately next to Ostrow Tumski, there is the Wroclaw Botanical Garden, where you can admire the magnificent vegetation and specially prepared exhibitions. It is a great place for walks on warm and sunny days.

Ostrow Tumski is one of the few places in this large and noisy city, where time flows much slower. He is known for being in love with the Tumski Bridge, where for many years there are padlocks with confessions and declarations of love.

There you can also admire gas lanterns, running the entire length of the route from the Tumski Bridge to the cathedral. Every night the lighthouse lights 91 gas lanterns, which makes it a unique and fairy-tale place.

Ostrow Tumski – tourist must see in Wroclaw

Is characterized by many wonderful places, attracting both tourists and residents. In its area there are magnificent cathedrals, a museum, as well as a characteristic bridge and a walking path along the Oder. At the Odra we also have the opportunity to sail by boat and spend our free time on the green areas or the newly built square on the other side of the shore. An interesting fact may be the fact that next to it there are the most popular in Wroclaw “Polish lody” about which taste and exceptionally long queues are already circulating legends on the Internet.

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.

Natural life in Wroclaw

Natural life in Wroclaw

When i came to Wroclaw for the first time, the temperatures did’nt let me to enjoy all the possibilities that this city offers. I started an “inside life” during the firsts weeks, which i enjoyed, but i needed something else. Because of that and with the arrival of good temperatures, i discovered all the things i was missing out during the frists days.

I can say that the Natural life in Wroclaw make the city a perfect place for everyone that loves to scape from the busy city life by enjoying the natural atmosphere that not all the big cities can show us. So for anyone who wants to come to this incredible city, there is some places that are a “must” to visit here.

One of the most improtant natural places to visit here is Szczytnicki Park. This park is one of the most diverse terrains in terms of nature. Here grow 350 species of trees from Europe, Asia, America and live here many species of animals: foxes, martens, 70 species of birds. More than one hundred hectares stretch between Różyckiego, Paderewskiego, Kopernika and Olszewskiego streets. In 1783, L. Hohenlohe, commander of the garrison of Wroclaw, founded the first park in this place, in the area of ​​the old village Szczytniki.

Secondly we can find another park in the neighborhood of Krzyki: Poludniowy Park. Natural life in Wroclaw this is it! In 1877, a wealthy merchant and philanthropist Julius Schöttlander donated 25 hectares to the city in an elegant district of Wroclaw.

A few years were enough to create a beautiful landscaped park, with a large pond and meadows. The Poudniowy Park is one of the favorite places of leisure of the Krzyki neighborhood, in which the inhabitants enjoy the walking paths. In the wide fields there are playgrounds, obstacle courses for children and suitable places to play petanque or badminton.

Apart of those two, there is another natural life in Wroclaw which i’d say is one of the most extravagant place of this city.

The Japanese garden is one of the most popular places for walks. In addition to hundreds of species of plants, trees, shrubs and original flowers, in the park there are also interesting Japanese elements such as the entrance door, the pavilion One of the attractive elements is a huge pond with carp and other species of fish. In the garden, presentations of the tea ceremony, concerts, outdoor events are often organized.

Apart from these, there are more natural places to visit that make Wroclaw a city where you can choose the way you can enjoy it, however, these three parks are the ones i like the most or the ones i found more interesting. As a final conclusion, Wroclaw offers an infinity of natural stuff that everyone should visit during their stay in the city.

Digital Nomads. The trend!

digital nomad

What is a digital nomad? Workers, but not any worker. Those who often work remotely with the help of tech.

Digital nomads are workers, Those who often work remotely with the help of tech. Such workers often work at home, coffee shops or even at the beach. Some would say the sky is the limit. But, for working nomads, the WiFi is the limit, this is a career path that allows location independence, as far as they connect to a good WiFi signal.

Why remote work make sense today?

Today,  the physical barriers no longer exist, the reason why the managerial models tend to be more flexible.

One common fear,  by managers, when considering whether to hire remote team members,  is that quality and productivity suffer when teammates are physically distant.

For some managers, the obligatory presence in an office is still a must. They need to see to believe. Managers don’t like surprises and may feel that they’d have a tougher time keeping track of employees. Without the formal check-ins that characterize an in-person environment, some could managers feel lost.

Fortunately, the picture is different in Wroclaw, those days, if you make a quick skim of the job offers that the companies allocated in Wroclaw, some of them are offering as a perk the opportunity to have some days of remote work. A trend that may sound appealing for an expat who wants the flexibility to enjoy a more complete experience of living abroad.

Why remote work makes sense in Wroclaw?

I want to start by saying that Wroclaw is underrated. Typically when people book their first trip to Europe they instantly think of countries such as France, Spain or Italy. However, Poland and specially Wroclaw is the best European destination 2018, Wroclaw in my opinion soon will be heading in the direction of a “go-to” destination in Europe. And quick!

Last year, this city has been awarded as one of the best cities in europe
Wroclaw, the Best European Destination 2018

Most People Speak English, the language barrier is not a problem in this city, another big plus, if you are a remote worker, wanted to visit Poland.

Good news! In Wroclaw, you shouldn’t have too much trouble with the language barrier, as most people also speak English. In addition, most restaurants will offer an English menu. If you are ever stuck reading a sign, label or maybe have to face a Polish menu, just download Google Translate app. You can simply take a picture of what you want to be translated and it will translate it. It’s that easy

Menus are translated into english

In summary,  if you love adventure, and flexibility is in your heart and remote work is in your core belief system,  the idea of making  Wroclaw your home for some weeks or months is a great idea.

Wroclaw a cultural destination and offers the possibility to travel to other near cities to enjoy new cultures. But,  as beautiful as this city is you need to keep your security at the forefront of your mind.

Even if you are familiar with Poland, some places are just tougher to foreigners than others;  Wroclaw is a friendly city, but it is still important to get into good habits regardless.
