Top 5 attractions you shouldn’t miss in Wroclaw


Wroclaw will make your head spins real fast if you let it. It has a wonderful downtown area as well as beautiful parks and museums. It’s a rocking place for history fans as well as arts or sports, or music.

But there are places you should not miss in Wroclaw.

1.Market Square (Rynek)

Make sure to stop by the Market Square. It’s magnificent and large. And has everything at your fingertips. Bars, clubs, restaurants. So much so, we recommend either finding accommodation near or make it your starting location for almost every day in Wroclaw.

Here you will get to experience the 700-year-old history. This is what the Old town should be.

While it is not the most popular attraction in Wroclaw, we really wanted to add it for several reasons. It is a great place to rest, meet up with friends, explore the flora of the whole wide world and Poland in particular. You know, the usual.

But the Wroclaw University Botanical Garden is also well situated. So after you walk around, you will be able to rest in nearby restaurants or, if you still have energy in you, continue exploring the wonders of Wroclaw.

3. Panorama Racławicka

Panorama of the Battle of Racławice is one of the most impressive things you will ever see. This is a rare example of paintings that is 15 meters high and 114 meters wide. The paining depicts a 1794 battle of Raclawicka and obviously, includes great level of detail. The entry is 30zl.

4. Wroclaw Zoo & Afrykarium

We have talked about the plants, so it makes sense to mention the animals. Is it not? Afrykarium is the only place in Poland exclusively focused on African fauna.

The zoo and Afrykarium are extremely popular among tourists as well as locals for many reasons. So, if you are in the center of the town, make sure to visit.

By the way, also get the Tourist Card – then the Afrykarium will only be 5zl. to enter.

5. Japanese Garden

While there is no lack of attractions that will let you know more about Poland and Wroclaw, you should surely visit the Japanese Garden of Wroclaw. Located in Adama Mickiewicza, 51-618, it features hundreds of plants as buildings of Japanese culture. It’s a very popular spot for walks, but even for someone who is in Wroclaw on their own – this place is not to be missed.
