Small Group or Private Wroclaw Tours With Local Guides
Wrocław has a unique location on the Odra River. The city consists of 12 islands connected with 130 bridges, so it is very similar to Venice but much less crowded and more manageable.
Its riverside parks are idyllic, and its beautifully preserved Cathedral Island is a treat for lovers of Gothic architecture.
Wroclaw is a lively cultural center, with several theatres, major festivals, rampant nightlife, and a large student community. The city’s main attractions are confined to three major boroughs in the city, all of which are accessible by foot thus perfect for our walking tour of Wroclaw!
The heart of Wrocław is its medieval market square (Rynek), which is one of the largest in Poland and arguably one of the most picturesque in all of Europe. It was almost totally rebuilt after 1945 but is just as beautiful as ever.
Wrocław’s Old Town is a winding maze of cobblestoned lanes, church spires, and vibrantly colored buildings. This is the district where you find most of the city’s historic monuments and medieval architecture so our Wroclaw walking tour focuses on this area.
Many of the buildings in Wrocław’s picturesque old town are painted with bright colors that reflect the city’s youthful and creative vibe. As one of the most colorful cities in the world, Wroclaw’s colors bring the city to life.
The city isn’t just inhabited by humans, as there is also a thriving gnome population! Over 300 gnomes are scattered throughout the city, with more appearing all the time. Our guide makes sure that you don’t miss the famous anti-communist dwarves. As you walk, keep your eyes peeled because more often than not, you encounter the famous dwarves of Wroclaw on the ground, in corners, and beneath window ledges – but, watch where you’re going.
