    Poland: Wroclaw – It’s All About the Dwarfs!

    After Krakow we headed west and towards the city of Wroclaw. You may have heard of this place because it was European City of Culture in 2016. What you probably can’t do however, is pronounce its name correctly. ‘Rock-law’? Nope. ‘Vrock-law’? Nooooo. ‘Vrock-lav’? No again. The problem is that, for non-Polish people, it’s pronunciation is nothing like you would expect based on the letters you see, so it is actually something more like ‘Vrots-wahv’. Got it? No, we didn’t either and ended up throwing out several different possible pronunciations every time we referred to it, finishing up with ‘…or however you pronounce it!’
