Poles are one of the most religious peoples in Europe. Catholicism is professed by over 90% of the population and the election of Karol Wojty³a to Pope with the name of Jan Pawe³ II (John Paul II) has contributed to revive the Catholic feeling also among the young generations. So it is not rare at all to meet nuns and priest even on the streets of big cities like Wroc³aw or Kraków.
KLODZKO. This little town is...
KLODZKO. This little town is a beauty. I've never made it all the way to Wroclaw but the Old Town of Klodzko is really charming too. Some buildings are highly decorated. I love the scenes that are painted on the walls of several buildings. The best time to view the town is around the sundown where the sun casts nice warm tones on the buildings. It is then that the colors really pop out.
I visited Pod Papugami (Under the Parrots) with a local VT member. It is a huge multi-level pub with wacky movie memorabilia decorations and an informal atmosphere.
The pub always seems to be crowded with a mix of locals and tourists. It also includes a dining area. A Pint of local beer sets you back 7 Zloty (2006).
