Reviews of Wrocław

Southeast Poland's largest city, Wrocław is a wonderful urban metropolis with a youthful, festive ambiance and atmosphere.

My suggestion:
There are a number of statues and contemporary artistic sculptures to be seen at various places throughout the city, such as various gnomes and a highly original group of passing pedestrians. See if you can find them for yourself!
My review

In my personal opinion, Wrocław combines all the best features of Polish towns and cities together in one place, and this is why it's one of my favourite large urban destinations in the whole country. In a word, it's magnificent. Like Kraków, Wrocław has a quite beautiful city centre and old town area, which as in many Polish towns and cities has a wonderfully impressive main square as its central feature. And it's a place that feels good to be: the pace is relaxed and easy-going, and there are various local parks here, brightening up the urban landscape with touches of green.

Additionally, Wrocław is also one of the most dynamic, happening cities in the whole country; and this is true both from an economic point of view (it is one of Poland's largest industrial centres) and from a cultural and social one, due to the numerous theatres and galleries to be found in the city and the vitality (including in a festive sense) the large student population brings to it.

In summary, Wrocław is a city that is simply guaranteed not to disappoint. I would therefore have no hesitation in recommending you come here during your trip to Poland.
