Destinations / Dejection agreeable / Wroclaw
Wroclaw, Poland’s fourth-largest city, is where you will find a colourful mixture of culture, entertainment, nightlife and idyllic Gothic architecture.
Having been under the rule of Bohemian administration, the Habsburgs, Prussia and being converted into a fortified military compound during WW2 by the Germans who called the city “Breslau”, it is no surprise the amount of attractions Wroclaw has to offer tourists.
Its unique architectural makeup includes its incredible market square Rynek, an entire Cathedral Island, Plac Solny, the Ossolineum, Partisan Hill and the Royal Palace. Flower markets, gnome hunting, concerts, shopping and a laid back yet vibrant atmosphere are just a fraction of what a Wroclaw city break has to offer.
There is no shortage of things to do in Wroclaw with its extensive festival calendar, contemporary art displays, music clubs and beer gardens. The Botanical and Japanese Gardens are popular amongst locals and the Partynice Racecourse and Adrenalina Park make for fantastic days out.
The Municipal Swimming Pools and the Water Park are hidden gems and football fans have the chance to see one of Poland’s biggest clubs - Slask Wroclaw.
Shopping lovers are also in their element with an abundance of options to choose from. Upmarket boutiques can be found along the Odrzanska, Kielbasnicza and Mikolaja streets, artisan galleries in Jatki and tiny, souvenir shops underneath the Town Hall. Modern shopping malls with big international labels are plentiful throughout Wroclaw and Magnolia Park is the city’s largest consumer temple – a must see!
Christmas markets in Wroclaw are very much alive each year and the panoramic views and gothic buildings provide a magical backdrop for that festive feeling. ClickandGo offers flights to Wroclaw and accommodation with a vast array of hotel properties to choose from.
