Wrocław No.38

The new Wrocław in Your Pocket is out. Get the PDF.

No longer the European Capital of Culture on paper (it’s on to you, Aarhus and Pafos), but forever so in our hears, Wrocław welcomes you – as always – with a full calendar of cultural events, a growing list of museums including the Four Dome Pavilion and Pan Tadeusz Museum, both of which were added in 2016, and a stealthy army of gnomes. Our recommendations for winter and early spring are simple: apart from checking off the must-sees, warm your insides with some mulled wine or hot beer at one of the city’s numerous cosy hang- outs, ice skate at Pergola next to the UNESCO-listed Centennial Hall, grab a hot pączek (donut) at Stara Pączkarnia, and – if you still have energy by the end of the day – check out a live music venue or party like there’s no tomorrow at Pasaż Niepolda. If this pocket guide isn’t enough, we have more content waiting for you at wroclaw.inyourpocket.com; feel free to share your thoughts with us by e-mailing wroclaw@inyourpocket.com or interacting with us on social media: Facebook and PolandInYourPocket on Instagram. Happy exploring!

Main Feature: Wrocław Markets

Strap on your social anthropologist helmet and get ready for a trip to the nineties to check out some of Wrocław’s endangered bazaars, or discover the local hipster scene at a few quirky venues. We give you a rundown of the city’s most culturally significant markets.

From early 20th-century architectural jewels to ‘wild wild East’ nineties shantytowns to hipster havens, Wrocław’s got its fair share of markets in which to hunt for bargains and antiques, discover a piece of Polish history, or get that perfect instagram shot.
