The coming month is chock-full of festivals. So much so, that we decided to put together a mini-guide for you (Festivals’ harvest on pages 5–7), featuring events that take place in September on a regular basis, as well as those that had to be postponed until September due to the pandemic.
What else? The beginning of the school year and the long-awaited return of children to their schools, which we used as an excuse to go for a sentimental walk and take a look at Wrocław’s Millennium schools. One of them – Primary School n° 71 – is located near Kołłątaja Street, which is prominently featured in the Eureka! Kołłątaja Street yearns to be discovered project. In an article devoted to the project, we take a closer look at the famous Mezonetowiec building designed by Jadwiga Grabowska-Hawrylak… but this is hardly the only place where we mentioned this legend of architecture. In the #blackwrocław series, Joanna Plizga decided to showcase the building complex, which residents of Wrocław commonly refer to as the Manhattan, in her usual black-and-white way.
However, if you were to make a ranking list of the most commonly mentioned buildings in Wrocław recently, the Solpol would win and there is no doubt about it. The author of Ugly Wrocław found excerpts from press articles about the opening of this post-modern architectural wonder. Whether or not it will be demolished remains unknown as of today; what we know is that the cultural offering for September is enormous – you will find more in the event calendar on pages 32–75.
Happy reading and planning your visits to the events!
