Welcome to Wroclaw

Wroclaw is difficult to spell, even harder to say and yet easy to fall in love with. This upcoming city in Poland is less touristy than Krakow, but it boasts just as much entertainment and culture and perhaps even a little more character. It is the fourth largest city in Poland and is considered such a cultural hub that it has been designated the 2016 European Capital of Culture. Here are a few things that you won’t want to miss when choosing JiveHippo.travel for your holiday in Wroclaw. 

Things to Do / Must-See

Wroclaw’s central square is one of the largest town squares in Europe and each of the buildings on its outskirts is of architectural and historical significance. There are also some popular beer pubs on the square, and its atmosphere always has an exciting buzz. There are numerous significant buildings in the city, including its cathedral and, in stark contrast to much of the ancient architecture, the 212 meter tall Sky tower constructed in 2012. 
Despite being a very populous city, Wroclaw has lots of green areas. Park Szczytnicki is a huge park, stretching several kilometres that is beautiful for walking, particularly in Autumn. Park Poludniowy is landscaped to perfection with a pond and perfectly manicured lawns. It also contains a large Japanese Garden, which the Japanese government were actually involved in creating. Unsurprisingly, it is a popular place to visit. 
There are several museums in Wroclaw, including the National and City Museums, Museum of Architecture and the Contemporary museum. However, unsurprisingly the most popular of all the Wroclaw museums is the Panorama Raclawicka, a canvas painting depicting a historical battle that wraps itself around a rotunda from which the painting can be viewed. 
After a long day sightseeing, you will be pleased to know that Wroclaw can offer you a vibrant yet relaxing evening. Why not start off with one of the famous pizzerias, rumoured to be the best outside of Italy owing to competition to be the best Italian restaurant among the Italian immigrants that have fallen in love with the city in recent years and decided to stay. 
Then, for pubs and clubs, head to the old town centre. Many of them are located a few blocks from the town square. The music in the different clubs can only be described as eclectic, varying from house and techno to live rock. Of course, if you would rather enjoy a relaxing beer, Wroclaw can cater for that too.
