I struggle to read or remember names if I can't pronounce them so I looked up Wrocław and Wikipedia tells me it's pronounced something like "vrotswaf". Well, I never would have guessed. I don't know any Polish whatsoever.
It's in the south west of Poland but over the years in history has been in Bohemia, Austria, Prussia and Germany. It has suffered name changes too: it is known, for example, as Breslau, Vratislav, and Breslavia in different countries.
