Learn more about Wroclaw

Wrocław is a beautiful city with hundreds of years of multicultural history. However, its beginnings were quite humble. Everything started for a very simple reason – because of the river Oder. Rivers were a big deal back in the day! They made the trade flow, because why carry all the valuables on your own, while you could make river currents do it for you? They also were capable of single-handily stopping armies and military advances. This is why Wrocław – or Vratislaw, Breslau, and a few other names – was so valuable and powerful! The river Oder made it prosperous and rich, while its strategic location made it vital for anyone wanting to have a military presence in Silesia. And trust us – everybody wanted a piece of that.

Because of that, Wrocław changed hands a lot. Czech, Polish, German, and even… French – that’s right, even Napoleon wanted Wrocław! They all controlled the city at one point or another in history. One of the most contested cities in the history of the region, each change of ownership only made Wrocław stronger. This is where the amazing, unique blend of cultures comes from! While the rulers changed and brought new laws, customs, and citizens with them, the people remained. They did not discard the way of the past, and instead of replacing it, they kept adding to it! This is why you can find so many influences from outside Poland in Wroclaw’s culture, architecture, and cuisine. 

This multi-cultural exposition also worked well for Wroclaws’ intelligence and academia. It can boast many Nobel Prize laureates from different fields of work. The most recent of them is Olga Tokarczuk, winner of the 2018 literature Nobel prize. Other Nobel-worthy Wrocław-related intellectuals include Theodor Mommsen, Paul Ehrlich, Eduard Buchner, Phillip Lénárd, Gerhart Hauptmann, Fritz Haber, Max Born, Friedrich Bergius, Otto Stern, and Reinhard Selten.

Used this company to take us from the airport to our hotel and back again to the airport. The service was great, the driver was waiting for us at the airport and was there early this morning to take us back to the airport. I couldn't recommend them highly enough,they really took the stress out of travelling in a city we have never visited before.

We used this service recently to and from the airport. Peter, the driver, was waiting for us as we entered the arrivals hall. He was very pleasant and spoke to us about places in Kraków that we should visit. On our journey back to the airport our driver was waiting for us right on time, outside the apartment. I would use this reliable, reasonably priced service again if I returned to Kraków.

FAQ

Here you can find answers for frequently asked questions.

The first thing that comes to mind is the famous Wrocław ZOO. Exciting and educational, the oldest Zoo in Poland is often considered the most interesting one in the country. Make sure to see the africarium! If your kids love playing in the water, Wrocław Aquapark is considered to be one of the best not only in Poland but Europe. For something entirely different, we recommend Kolejkowo. This incredibly precise and realistic miniature mockup is a love letter to the most beautiful places in Lower Silesia that are reachable by train. You can find it at Świebodzki Station. Highly recommended!

There are so many great options it is hard to give a single recommendation. You might as well decide to start where Wrocław itself started. Ostrów Tumski island is the oldest part of the city. This is where the first people of Wroclaw founded their village at least in the Xth century, if not earlier. Atmospheric and inspiring, the island remains one of the favorite scenic points of both the locals and tourists. You also should absolutely make sure to not miss the Market Square! One of the biggest of its time, it was and still is bustling with life. The colorful tenement houses and unique Town Hall attract the eye and make for fantastic photo opportunities. If you are a fan of nature, you might want to take a break from architecture and visit the oceanarium and Zoo. Wrocław’s zoo is the oldest in the country!

Go and experience the boulevards. You will not regret it! But...which ones? There are so many! The Odra Boulevard, Dunikowski Boulevard, Kaczyński Boulevard, Zienkiewicz Boulevard - all are worth walking through at least once! So pick and choose! Renovated and well taken care of, they are go-to walk routes for locals. And they know their city best.
