Wałbrzych is a city in Lower Silesian Voivodeship in south-western Poland, with 125,773 inhabitants and it's situated about 65 km south-west of Wrocław. It's just 10 km to Czech border :) So you can visit Czech republic too :) I'm just 18 and I dont have a car yet, so we can travel by buses or u can take ur own car :)

Wałbrzych on Google Maps:

There is Szczawno Zdrój, a town bordered with Wałbrzych with a lot of spas and beautiful parks.

I would love to show you all nice places in Wałbrzych, including The Old Książ! It's hard to find this hidden ruins, but I can show you where it is :) It's very beautiful place with nice view at Zamek Książ (the ''new'' one).

Wałbrzych is probably the most ugly of Polish cities that i have seen, the main road the 35 that runs straight through is rutted and pot holed beyond belief. Im sure it once had charm and will have again but a serious cash injection is required.

What a depressing place to live. Swidnica is a much more anaesthetically pleasing city.

Very beautiful castle Książ

I don't think much of it, to be honest.
