Free attractions in Wrocław

19 of May 2021

Wrocław is worth seeing, no matter how rich your wallet is. This time, we present six points thanks to which you will get to know Wrocław completely free of charge.

Eventy na wrocławskim rynku

1. Events on the Wroclaw market square.

The Wroclaw market is one of the largest Old Town markets in Europe. It is located 5 minutes’ walk from our hotel, so it is a must-see on your list of places to see. There is only pedestrian traffic here, which is conducive to walking and using the restaurant gardens. In winter, the famous Christmas Market is organized in the Market Square, attracting crowds of tourists every year. In spring, however, you can admire the St. John's Fair. The inspiration to organize it was Midsummer Night, previously cultivated among the Slavs as the Festival of Fire and Water. This year the fair will be held from May 21 to June 28. You will be able to buy regional products here, taste local delicacies or rest in the shade of plants specially imported for this occasion.

Isn't that a good reason to visit Wrocław for a weekend at this time?

 
Ostrów Tumski we Wrocławiu

2. Ostrów Tumski. 

The most important, the most beautiful and the oldest part of Wrocław. It is located 25 minutes from our Hotel, taking a slow walk. For centuries, this place was subject to church authority, in the past it was even necessary to pay the so-called "toll" for crossing the bridge that led to Ostrów Tumski.

Currently, this part of Wrocław is extremely popular among Wrocław residents, myself and among tourists. Lovers hang padlocks near the Tumski Bridge, and tourists look for the famous lighthouse keeper, who, wearing a hat and a black overcoat, lights up beautiful gas lanterns every day. There is also a monumental cathedral of St. John the Baptist and the Bishop's Palace.

Being in this area, it is also worth seeing the Słodowa Island, Hala Targowa and Boulevard Dunikowski.
 
największą fontanną w Polsce i jedną z największych w Europie

3. Multimedia fountain.

The multimedia fountain located on the Pergola is the largest fountain in Poland and one of the largest in Europe. When booking a hotel in the city center, getting there is extremely easy. There are two trams leading to the fountain, which have their stops, among others, at our hotel.

The first multimedia show took place in 2009, on the twentieth anniversary of the first free elections in post-war Poland. 300 water jets with music and light created an unforgettable spectacle.

This year, due to epidemiological reasons, special screenings were canceled. Nevertheless, the organizers still invite you to daily, short shows, providing us with equally many amazing artistic experiences.

In the immediate vicinity there are: the Centennial Hall, the Zoo, the Four Domes Pavilion and the Japanese Garden.

 
Wrocławskie krasnale

4. Wroclaw dwarfs.

Favorite attraction of our youngest guests. The search for the gnomes can take 5 minutes, but just as well a full day. There are over 600 of them! For every seeker of these little creatures, we have prepared a surprise - a map of Wrocław dwarfs, which you will get at check-in.

If the dwarfs are the main goal of your trip, we especially encourage you to visit Wrocław in September, because that's when the Dwarfs Festival takes place. During the ceremony, children color dwarf houses, take part in numerous competitions and, together with their parents, have the opportunity to eat delicious ice cream in the fairy-tale Old Town Park.

5. Free tour of Wrocław

Every year, the so-called "guided summer walks" are becoming more and more popular. These are completely free tours from July to September. Everyone will find something for themselves: children, adults, fans of hiking or cycling. The guide speaks one of three languages: Polish, English or German. It is worth mentioning that the subject of such walks is extremely extensive. We can find out how you used to make money in Wrocław, get to know the Wrocław water junction, look for gnomes or listen to evening stories that end with a meeting with the lighthouse keeper.
 
Park Szczytnicki we Wrocławiu

6. Szczytnicki Park. 

The last place we have chosen for you, and which cannot be forgotten - Szczytnicki Park. It is worth visiting it when visiting the Centennial Hall, as it is located nearby. It is one of the most diverse areas in terms of nature. It was founded in 1783 in the shape of English parks. Currently, the space of over one hundred hectares is the perfect place to rest.
