That’s the thing with tourism, you always have to find a new way to amuse your guests. It’s not about chasing for what the competition has, it’s what you have and they don’t! We can not all be the same, the beauty lies in the difference and that’s how this city stands up, it’s unique. This seems to me like a good example of differentiation in a crowded market.
Legend says that if you touch the tongue of the bear statue in the square you will come back to Wroclaw, and thanks to our friends we found out for this just in time to secure our comeback in the future. 🙂
