Wroclaw is a small but beautiful city in Poland. The old town centre is picturesque, and you can spend a few hours wandering around and spotting the hundreds of bronze gnome statues scattered all over the town.
There are plenty of things to do, including many cool restaurants and bars, so it’s a good option for a long weekend.
To the north of the old town there are a few islands in the river Oder where you can visit local churches and museums or walk by the scenic promenade.
- Szczytnicki Park is a large park with some famous local attractions. It is a bit far from the city centre but the walk there is interesting.
- Central Market: a large market with a good selection of fruit and veg and other local produce.
- Transport: it is easy to walk everywhere on foot, but the city is covered by a good network of trams which are very convenient. You can buy tickets on board with a debit or credit card. Tickets for 3.40zl.
