Sky Tower – luxurious skyscraper Wroclaw’s calling card

Sky Tower is a modern complex, which functions as a housing, services and merchandising centre. It lies in the heart of Wroclaw and by many is called the new symbol of Wroclaw. One of the buildings is a unique tower, which stands 212 meters tall. The second one is shaped after a sail full of wind. It consists of entertainment estabilishments, shopping mall, many offices and luxurious apartments. The impressive height solidifies Sky Tower’s position as the highest building in Poland.

Place, where business and commerce meets the everyday life at the highest level

Sky Tower is not only a place to live and work, but it is a great venue to host many different parties. In May 2014 a first edition of Sky Tower took place, whereas 500 volunteers ran straight to the top of Sky Tower using stairs! To satisfy curiosity, the best time among men was 6:22 and 6:45 among women.

Best places to see Wroclaw from the rooftops.

First two weeks in Wroclaw made me understand one thing: this city is for life. Comfortable happy life. And for work. Not for your career, but for stable work.  Everything here is so tiny, so calm. When you go to the main square of Wroclaw, it seems like you got into a fairy tale – all the houses look like they’re made of gingerbread.  But have you ever seen Wroclaw from the rooftops? I propose you 3 rooftops to visit, while you’re in Wroclaw.

1. Sky Tower – number 1 for seeing Wroclaw from the rooftops

Sky Tower is the highest building in Poland. It’s 258 m in height, and there’s a viewpoint on the 49th floor. The view is amazing, this place is worth to visit, even if you stay in Wroclaw just for two days.

Location: Powstańców Śląskich street, 95

Ticket: 12-16 zl

Open hours: 8 am to 4 pm

P.S. Don’t worry, they have the fast elevators, so it’ll not take too much time to go up there.

P.S.S. You can have a cup of coffee or tea on the top.

2. Mostek Pokutnic – number 2 in my list, if you want to see Wroclaw from the rooftops.

This place is in the main square of Wroclaw, named Rynek, and I think, it’s a very romantic one. Because you’ll see the city not from the tower, but from the bridge! However, be ready to climb the narrow spiral staircase. And believe me, you’ll not be disappointed.

Location; Rynek

Ticket: 5 zl

Open hours: 9 am to 5 pm

3. Hotel Monopol – my number 3 in the list, where you can see Wroclaw from the rooftops

This hotel is situated in the heart of the city, next to the main square. I’m not telling about its suits, but about its summer terraces, which are surrounded by the Gothic church, with views on the Opera House and the National Forum of Music. Also there’s a bar, where you can drink your morning coffee or evening cocktail.

Location: Heleny Modrzejewskiej street, 2

Ticket: free entrance, but you need to order something

Open hours: 12 pm to 11 pm

P.S. The only minus of this place – it’s closed during winter times.

Some tips:

  • if you have time to visit a few towers, it’s better to do this at different times of the day – you’ll see different Wroclaw!
  • think about your clothes. Remember, it can be cold, windy, etc on the top.
  • prize yourself with a cup of tea or hot chocolate, when you reach the top.
  • if you have any doubts whether it’s worth – leave your doubts! I guarantee, you’ll enjoy each moment.
