Wrocławfag here.>What places/shops/monument should I visit?
There's not that much really. Ostrów Tumski, the whole Old Town area, Panorama Racławicka. You'll get it all done quickly, it's one of those weekend cities. The city zoo right opposite the Centennial Hall is actually pretty cool.>Is the city safe?
Absolutely, yes. The only district with a really bad reputation that's now mostly undeserved is the Bermuda Triangle (area between Kościuszki, Pułaskiego and Komuny Paryskiej streets). You're far more likely to get fucked up by drunken trash in Pasaż Niepolda, a crowded-by-night backstreet with most of the city's shitty clubs.>How much does a student normally spend monthly?
Depends on your expectations. Use numbeo.com
for these sorts of questions. Food will run you about 600 PLN, assuming a decent diet; rent is anywhere between 400-1500 PLN depending on location, apartment and whether you share. Pub beer (0,5l) is 5-7 PLN for big brands and 12-16 for crafts.>Do people speak English?
The young, yes. The old, not that often.>Are student well received?
There's only 640k permanent inhabitants but 120k students, about 3 quarters of them moving in for the school year from elsewhere. They're part of the landscape.>What outfit do you suggest for winter?
Fuck if I know, the weather's been crazy lately. One winter it barely ever drops below zero, the other you hit sub -20C temperatures on the regular. Pack both a light and a thick jacket.>If I wanted to visit other cities how should I move?Polskibus.pl
will probably be the cheapest. Trains are an option as well. There's an ok search aggregator at e-podroznik.pl
that's useful for quickly finding the smaller companies who operate a given route. I never booked through them though, always went to the company's site directly or just got the ticket straight from the driver.
