Wroclaw – 5

Excerpt from the new book about visiting Poland and The Baltics.

The painting was created over 100 years after the battle at the behest of some patriots in the then Polish city of Lwow. The group of painters completed the work in around 9 months. After WWII the painting was sent to Wroclaw but the authorities didn’t wish to display it because they thought the subject matter would upset their new Soviet friends. It was only in 1985 that the canvas was shown for the first time in Wroclaw and it has been a popular attraction ever since. Visitors get 30 minutes to see the painting and should use the audio-guides as these provide a detailed overview of all the scenes. The numbers of people are limited so things don’t become too crowded.

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool. I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017. My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders. I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit.
