As the year winds down, Wrocław revels in autumn foliage before diving right into the holiday season with a phantasmagoria of colour and light on the main square as yet another Christmas Market gets underway. This fall, we’re all about day trips from the city, and we have two great suggestions for you: the UNESCO-listed Churches of Peace in Świdnica and Jawor, which happen to be the largest Baroque structures made from wood, and mysterious Nazi tunnels hidden in the Owl Mountains (Project Riese). For those who’d rather stay put and explore the city, we recommend strolls in the autumntime Japanese Garden and Botanical Garden, topped off with a good old gnome hunt, or if rainy weather is getting you down a visit to the new Depot History Center and a hot beer or two at one of Wrocław’s cosy drinking dens.
We hope you enjoy this season in one of Poland’s most beautiful cities. As always, don’t hesitate to contact us via e-mail at email@example.com or on FB at if you have any comments or suggestions. Here’s to a happy autumn and an even happier holiday season!

“The place to be,” indeed: Korba (The Crank) did a very thorough job in making an environment that’s as multi-functional as possible. Their core concept is to divide the day into three parts: breakfast served from a usefully early hour, cheap and tasty daily-special lunch (20zł from noon till 17:00), and a fancier wine-and-dine menu for the evenings.
The woman behind this “Artistic Knittery” creates unique, whacky articles of clothing and accessories for free-spirited types, including leather bags with reproductions of famous images and artsy metal jewellery.
