Cheap flights to Wroclaw (WRO)
Wroclaw is on the Oder River and it is the largest city in western Poland. Its many attractions range from historic buildings to a vibrant nightlife. The old town, or Stare Miasto, was rebuilt after the Second World War and it is home to most of the main tourist attractions. The bustling Rynek, the central square, is one of the largest in Europe and has many cafes and bars. Nearby, visitors can climb the 90m tower of St Elizabeth's Church to enjoy spectacular views over the city. The Town Hall, on the Rynek, has a spectacular Gothic interior. On the Oder River, the modernist Centennial Hall is the work of the architect Max Berg, and is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. The historic streets of Ostrów Tumski, the islands on the Oder River, are best walked in the early evening to enjoy their mysterious atmosphere, lit by oil-fired lamps. The Sky Tower, just outside the city centre, has a high speed lift to the 45th floor for views of the city and beyond. The city's Japanese Garden was opened for the World Expo of 1913 and has been restored to its former splendour. Wroclaw's most-visited museum is the Panorama Raclawicka which has one exhibit: a spectacular panorama of an 18th century battle between Russian and Polish troops. The National Museum has an important collection of Polish art, while the Wrocław Contemporary Museum is in an unusual setting: a World War Two air raid shelter. One unusual feature of Wroclaw is a collection of over 250 dwarf statues commemorating the Orange Alternative protest movement which started in Wroclaw in the 1980s. The bronze figurines are located in the most unusual locations around the city.
