Wleń is a town in Lwówek Śląski County, Lower Silesian Voivodeship, in south-western Poland. It is located on the Bóbr river in the historic Lower Silesian region, approximately south-east of Lwówek Śląski, and west of the regional capital Wrocław.
The town is the seat of the administrative district ( gmina) called Gmina Wleń. , it has a population of 1,855.
Wleń was established in 1214 by the Silesian duke Henry I the Bearded and his wife Hedwig of Andechs. The ruins of Łupki Castle , until 1945 property of the Haugwitz noble family, lie off the town's center, it served to protect the nearby borders with Bohemia and Upper Lusatia and was devastated during the Thirty Years' War. A Baroque palace was rebuilt underneath it. Prior to 1945 it was in Germany. After World War II the region was placed under Polish administration and ethnically cleansed according to the post-war Potsdam Agreement. The native German populace was expelled and replaced with Poles.
Łupki castle, also known as Zamek Wleń, and its only remaining tower is visible from the town. The picture shows the view of Wleń from the top of the tower, which currently stands less than half its original height. In 2005, a western portion of one of the castle's outer walls crumbled, forcing the castle to be temporarily closed to tourists. The crumbled section of the outer wall was rebuilt over time using funds from the Polish government and the European Union and completed in 2009.

WLEN (103.9 FM) is a radio station in Adrian, Michigan, broadcasting a full-service adult contemporary format with a heavy emphasis on local news, weather and sports. The station began broadcasting in 1965 as the first FM radio station in Lenawee County, and has been owned by the Koehn family (d/b/a Lenawee Broadcasting Company) since its inception. Over the years the station's music has evolved from a mix of MOR and country music to exclusively adult contemporary with hits from the mainstream AC and Hot AC formats, with oldies played on Fridays during "Friday Flashbacks." Like many other AC stations, WLEN plays continuous Christmas music between Thanksgiving and Christmas, taking a break on Fridays for the station's regular "Friday Flashbacks" programming of oldies from the 1950s through the 1980s.
WLEN features ABC Entertainment Network radio news on the hour. All music programming is locally hosted (locally automated during overnight hours) with the exception of two weekend specialty shows: Magic of the 80's on Saturday nights and the weekend version of the John Tesh Radio Show on Sunday nights.
