What is worth seeing in winter in Wroclaw?
One of the winter attractions in Wroclaw is the zoo. We all love animals, and it is well known that the best place to admire them in the capital of Lower Silesia is in our beautiful zoo - especially since it includes the famous Afrykarium, a modern facility with an underground passage under the aquariums. Especially now it is a very tempting offer, because in Wroclaw Afrykarium in winter, as well as all year round, the same temperatures prevail. A big plus is that the queues are much shorter in winter.
Another must-see is the popular Centennial Hall, located across from the zoo. The square behind the building is surrounded by frontages where you can take souvenir photos. Next to it there is the Japanese Garden, which is said to be the most beautiful in winter, when severe frost and rime turn the bare trees and bushes into real jewels.
Planning a visit to Wroclaw in winter, you can not miss the famous Old Town. In the charming tenement houses surrounding it you will immediately feel the characteristic atmosphere of a historic city. The best place to learn about the history of Wroclaw is the Museum of Bourgeois Art, located in the Town Hall. In front of the Town Hall there is also a monument to Aleksander Fredro and a sandstone Pillory. Walking through the streets of the Old Town, it is worth directing your steps to the tower of St. Elizabeth Church. Admission to the tower is paid, but with good weather and cloudless sky you can see a panorama of the entire city. You can also enjoy a beautiful view from the Sky Tower building, which is located away from the Old Town. From there you can look at the old buildings of Wroclaw from a completely different perspective.
