Shabbos in Wroclaw (pronounced Vrotz-warv)

Wroclaw The fourth biggest city in Poland. A city of 12 islands linked by more than 100 bridges, Wroclaw, like Bruges in Belgium, calls itself the Venice of the North.
Wroclaw's main draw is its picturesque city centre, brimming with Gothic and Renaissance architecture. It's easily navigable on foot and most visitors stick around the main Rynek Square and one of the biggest islands, Cathedral Island.
Warsaw to Wroclaw is 471 Kilometers the train was an express so it took 5 Hours we Left at 6:30 (yes I had to wake up at 5:30 am) and it got there at 11:30

if you notice the snow on the left is on top of the water which turned into ice because the river froze, it not because it ends there!

well Friday night there wasn't a minyan so we ate are meal in our room and went to sleep around 8:30 got a 12 hour sleep (known as a bagel). At 9:30 was Shachris when we came there was a priest at the shul because he wanted to do a memorial service for the Jews but people were a bit late because of the weather and he got tired of waiting around so he left. Davening was very nice Reb Dovid knew a lot he knew Chozons but his voice was old but he tried and that's what counts.
There where like 13 men 11 of them where Jewish. There where like 11 Woman but I am not sure how many where Jewish. After Davening there was a kiddush the only thing that was kosher was the wine the we brought and the Challah's that we gave them. Every other guy made sure to tell us the food is not kosher
as if we were gonna eat it anyway. We sang a lot of songs for them including Kol Bayar, Dovid Melach, Ani Mamin, MiPi Kel etc. They tried to show there songs back to us Shtetel Belz,Rozshinkes mit Mandlin.
They finished eating there food they bentched they thanked us 30 times every person getting up and a lady translating what they were saying.
