Top things to do in Wrocław
Soak in the historic beauty
Wrocław's old town was rebuilt after World War II. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site that boasts beautifully preserved Gothic, Baroque and Art Nouveau buildings that line its quaint streets and squares. The iconic market square, Rynek, is the city’s beating heart, surrounded by vibrantly coloured houses, charming pubs and bustling market stalls.
Hop on a boat cruise
Although Wrocław is a perfectly walkable city, another fun way to explore it from a different perspective is to take one of the numerous boat tours. Many start close to the city centre, sailing along the river towards the east and back. You can choose from swan boats to kayaks, SUP boards and even race boats.
Spot the gnomes
In the 1980’s, the anti-communist movement used gnomes as their symbol. A decade after the end of the Soviet Union, the first gnome sculpture was put up in honour of the movement. Nowadays, you can find over 300 charming little gnomes sprinkled around the most imaginative places – hanging from lamp posts, peeking around street corners and sitting by the river.
