Wroclaw is one of the best developing cities in Poland. As a result, more and more people come to our city in search of a job, studying or looking for adventure in one of the largest Polish cities. It can be said that in Wrocław, you can live a small “American Dream”. People living here have many interests, and one of them is music. Nothing relaxes after a hard week’s work like meeting friends over a good coffee or drink and even better live music. There are many interesting places, however, 3 places deserve special attention. The A2 Concert Center, the Firlej Club and Café, and the Old Monastery.
A2 concert center
The A2 concert center is located on Góralska Street, and is special because it has a concert hall with an area of over 1000m2. Mass events take place there and stars from all over the world, who play various kinds of music, are invited here. You can listen to reggae, pop, metal, disco, techno and many others. Everyone will find something for themselves.
The Old Monastery is a unique place because of its history. In the past it used to be a Dominican monastery, and now it hosts live concerts. In the cellars of the monastery there is a jam session once a week where music lovers can try their hand at music. On the ground floor there is a restaurant with a small stage on which musicians perform and are organized various events such as Open Mic – Stand Up, reading literature or card games. On the first floor there is a gothic hall, where larger musical events take place. The hall can accommodate several thousand people, and the gothic atmosphere adds character to every concert, which can be watched from the stage or balcony with seats. It is really worth to go to the Old Monastery.
The Firlej club-café is a place of less commercial importance than the other two. However, it is more focused on one kind of music, namely jazz. For connoisseurs of the genre, this is a great place, and for laymen, a place where you can listen to live music, have a delicious coffee and play board games. The concert hall can accommodate 350 people, so you don’t have to wait 2 hours in line waiting for the concert.
There are still many places in Wroclaw that I haven’t mentioned, but these 3 places deserve to be the top places on the cultural map of Wroclaw.
