For our last walk of 2019 we are in Wroclaw / Poland again. This city in western Poland (German: Breslau) was among our first walks on the channel https://youtu.be/MCSU8kzRO1Y
This time we start outside of the old town this time where we see some first festive lights. The Christmas markets in Poland run until 31.12. so we quickly see the first one on Plac Solny and the bigger one on the Rynek (main square). A stage for the New Years celebrations is still being built.
A quick stroll through the Stare Jatki, an old street with collection of bronze farm animals as a memorial to slaughter. We see the nearby St. Elizabeth’s Church and have a look inside. We then head north to the university and outside of the old town.
The sun is down by now. It gets darker and colder when we get to the Oder river and Ostrów Tumski, the island of churches. This island has a 1000 year history with Nicolaus Copernicus and even Giacomo Casanova living there once in their lives.
Passing the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist we finish our round through Wroclaw, which is mostly the reverse walk from January, near the Church of Sts. Peter and Paul.
Note: The last ca. 14 minutes needed to be brightened up in post-processing. There is more video noise yet it’s a bit more watchable than an even darker video. Also watch out for flickering LEDs in case of being sensitive to strobes. Some lights are out of sync with video fps as I film 60p @ 1/100sec to avoid European 50Hz flickers.
