Odyssey in Poland & Fryderyk Chopin
Chicago
 
Wrocław is called "Venice of the North" or the "Polish Venice" because of its over hundred bridges and canals. The city fascinated me. It was like a fairyland.
 
 
The bridge leads to the island called Ostrów Tumski where is the oldest part of Wrocław.   Soon after crossing the bridge, I reached the gigantic Gothic tower. It is the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, the symbol of Wrocław.
The top of the tower commands a great 360 degree view of the city of Wrocław. It was early evening when I was up there, so the city and the Odra were glittering from the reflection of the sun.
 
 
The Katyn memorial.
22,000 Polish citizens were murdered by the Soviet secret police in the Katyn forest in April 1940.
