I really enjoyed walking in the old city. You will find lots of interesting sights to visit, nice churches with tower view, many restaurants and bars - both expensive and cheap, street food, souvenir shops. The buildings are old and well taken care of. Very close there is an area with channels and islands. The city doesn't look extremely touristic... More

Wroclaw is a beautiful city, a real gem, and the old town square is the jewel in its crown. Stunning Germanic looking buildings, so elegant and beguiling. We just couldn't help gravitating back towards it every time we wanted to eat or drink. Fantastic atmosphere, a beautiful place and highly recommended.

What a delightful town. Great architecture. Fab selection of restaurants. Had the good fortune to be there when their Christmas market was on. What a bonus that was, ended up having to buy another case for all the locally produced goods I purchased. Recommend a visit anytime of the year.

Nor could you miss this right in the heart of the city. Many restaurants but beware if you have problems with stairs usually the toilets are down many steep steps and inaccessible. The people of Wroclaw are friendly and a very relaxing place no hassle you can just take your time.

Rynek, the squares in the centre of Wroclaw are lovely, and well worth taking time to stroll around. plus most of the main bars and restaurants are here, and in easy reach. Plenty of incredible churches, museums etc to find as you divert off from the main squares, too.

I enjoyed a really informative walking tour around the Old Town courtesy of Matti (Damon?!) the Free Walking Tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the city's history and culture, and he brought it all to life with his lively delivery and sense of humour.

The historic center of Wroclaw is beautiful, with clear German influences, and also quite walkable (many of the streets are pedestrianized). It's small enough that one can easily walk from end to the other.

Wroclaw's Old Town is not only it's historical centre but also today's social and cultural centre. Here you will find, not only the city's most splendid architecture but also its best shops, restaurants, bars, galleries and museums. The very epicentre and life hub of the Old Town is of course the Main Market Square, or 'Rynek'. This amazing space was... More
