Wroclaw

The New York Times has a wonderful story (here) about my wife's hometown, Wroclaw (pronounced Vrots-waf), Poland. It is truly a wonderful cosmopolitan city, with a rich history captured in a terrific book by Norman Davies and Roger Moorhouse, Microcosm: Portrait of a Central European City. Most Americans have never heard of Poland's fourth largest city; some may be more likely to recognize its old German name of Breslau. In any case, it is well worth a visit, situated conveniently halfway between Warsaw and Prague.
