Wroclaw shortlisted for EXPO 2012

| |
  
The cities Wroclaw of Poland and South Korea’s Yeosu have risen as the favorites for the staging of EXPO 2012, revelation which leads many Poles to ask if it’s even conceivable that one of their quaintest and fastest developing cities can host the entire globe in 2012.

After Wroclaw's presentation for the Bureau of International Expositions (BIE) in the Congress Palace in Paris jurors were entirely charmed. It was unbeatable among the other performances by Poland's city competitors, Morocco’s Tangiers and Yeosu.

Yeosu presented "The Living Ocean and Coast: Diversity of Resources and Sustainable Activities," whereas Tangiers touted its "Routes of the world, cultures connecting. For a more united world," but Wroclaw stole the show with "The culture of Leisure in World Economies."

The 3 countries have 2 more opportunities to “strut their stuff,” in June and December next year, before the world gets its winner to host the 2012 International Exhibition.

Wroclaw is Poland’s 4th largest city (pop. 640,000), 310 km from the capital Warsaw. It is an important industrial, transportation and communications center for the country’s southern regions. It was partially destroyed at the end of World War II, but since rebuilt and some of the damaged historical buildings restored, and from its splendor considered one of Eastern Europe’s most beautiful cities.

Wroclaw, pronounced ROCK-LOVE in Polish has an official website for its EXPO 2012 candidacy (www.expo2012.pl/ln/en).
