Wrocław In Your Pocket no.47
★ 20 years in Poland ★

Hurrah! Wrocław ended 2019 on a high note, becoming a UNESCO City of Literature, and not just for a year, but for all of eternity (presumably). After witnessing hundreds of cool literary events taking place around the city in recent years, we can’t say we’re surprised, but we sure are proud that UNESCO took notice.

In our eyes, this is not just a city of literature, but also a city of art and music – just look at the packed calendar of cultural events (starting on p.14), which this time around includes plenty of jazz (Ethno Jazz Festival, p.15; Jazz on the Odra, p.17; and a concert by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, p.16), organ concerts at the National Forum of Music (p.16), one of Poland’s best concert halls, Fiddler on the Roof at the Wrocław Opera (p.14), and numerous exhibitions. For even more listings – including special UNESCO City of Literature events which will be announced in 2020 – head to our website, inyourpocket. com/wroclaw, and click on ‘what’s on’.

As always, don’t hesitate to contact us by e-mail at poland@inyourpocket.com or via our FB page, if you have any comments or questions. Enjoy Wrocław!

Cover Story

Wrocław is beautiful at any time of the year, but especially so when the festive illuminations come on. This twilight shot by photographer Henryk Sadura captures some wintery lights on the Market Square (p.29), and a breathtaking sky.
