The capital of Lower Silesia is an open and hospitable city where everyone feels wonderful. A real meeting place. It delights with its endless riverside boulevards, the islands on the Oder River and picturesque parks. It is practically made for walking or cycling tours. A trip to Wrocław is a perfect opportunity to combine the fairy-tale atmosphere of the Old Town with the attractions of a thriving cultural, scientific and business centre. You can also go on a quick trip to the nearby mountains or the Czech Republic.
Wrocław is located on the Oder River and is commonly known as “the city of one hundred bridges”. In fact, there are even more of them! You can also see here beautiful parks and boulevards on the Oder, and as many as 12 islands. There is no neighbourhood where the locals cannot find a place to rest in the bosom of nature. In the very centre of Wrocław, you will find its oldest part, Ostrów Tumski. This atmospheric and beautiful place is extremely popular among those in love and tourists. The time goes slower and the nights are illuminated by gas lanterns, lit by a characteristic lamplighter in a black cape.
Wrocław is also a city where several hundred gnomes live. Small sculptures can be found all over the city and are an integral part of the capital of Lower Silesia. Searching for gnomes is a great fun for the whole family and a fantastic way to explore this extraordinary city. We can tell you that one of them is resting right next to our hotel.
Every year Wrocław hosts many cultural events that attract thousands of music and film fans. These include Wratislavia Cantans and Jazz on the Oder Festival as well as one-of-a-kind cinema celebration – New Horizons Festival. Wrocław is an ideal place for young people. It has its own unique atmosphere and is a magnet for tourists and participants of cultural events. In 2016, Wrocław was awarded the title of European Capital of Culture, and three years later it became a UNESCO City of Literature. No wonder – after all, this is the town of our Nobel Prize winner, Olga Tokarczuk.
