“Vibrant Christmas Market at the old square”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

Bustling, colourful and lively despite the cold and wind. Helped by the local mulled wine and barbecued snacks. Wonderfully preserved architecture and many quality and good value cafés and restaurants around the square. Would love to return in summer when it must be even more enjoyable. As yet unspoiled though.

“It is a MUST (obviously :))”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

I really don't think that Market Square requires additional recommendation. You can't miss it and if you have been in Wroclaw and haven't seen it, well...you have to come again :)

“Beautifully restored”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

A real gem of a city centre with plenty of restored houses lining the square. Look up at the amazing decorations and join in the hunt for the gnomes !

“One of the best in Europe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

Wrocław is only lately growing as a major tourist destination. Dare I say: finally! The new Europe on the rise!

As far as squares go this is one of the best and most picturesque in all of Europe - and this is no exaggeration, this place beats is certainly on par with classics like Kraków and Prague. I love how the central town hall complex formes some kind of a district in its own right with its all streets and shops. The buildings around are colourful and although most of the architecture comes from the German times you have to give a big hand for the Poles who restored it to such a magnificent effect after Soviet-German battle in 1945 turning the city into rubble.
