Lower Silesia is beautiful region, full of castles, old buildings, charming towns, cities and beautiful landscapes.
Historically, this region was always divided between three countries: Czech Republic, Poland and German speaking Empire. After WW2, Poland “received” land that before was in German hands…That synthesis – of Polish culture, chaos, sometimes poverty with German style architecture brings you something fresh…. Sometimes you may find abandonded historical buiildings, that are just perfect for David- Lynch like movies…Sometimes you will see some beautiful agriculture fields of corn, grain, sunflowers…Sometimes, you will spot beautiful mountains with wild forests…ALL of that in Lower Silesia region, not further than 100 km from Wrocław !
Below I present you some samples of typical Lower SIlesian small cities and towns… They are located near Wrocław, or a little further – in nearest mountains. They are all beautiful & worth visiting…
Baja Silesia en Polonia es una area hermosa, llena de castillos, pueblos historicos y buenos paisajes. Este region siempre ha sido dividido por 3 paises: Polonia, Checa y Alemania, Despues Segunda Guerra Mundial , Baja Silesia fue “regalada” para Polonia (porque en los ultimos 150 anos Baja Silesia era parte de Alemania). Esta mezcla – de cultura polaca – chaotica,no regulada, a veces con pobreza incluida con architectura alemana y estilo alemano…resulto en algo nuevo y fresco. En Baja Silesia se puede encontrar los edificios antiguos y abandadonados (ideales para peliculas de David Lynch). A veces se puede encontrar tambien los campos de maiz, girasol…Tambien montanas con bosque…Todo eso no mas lejos que 100 km desde Wrocław !
Te mostro abajo ejemplos de tipicos sitios en Baja Silesia: las ciudades, los pueblos etc. Son ubicados no tan lejos desde Wrocław y los todos valen la pena una visita…
