Wroclaw from the rooftops

Wroclaw from the rooftops

Wroclaw from the rooftops

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.

Wroclaw from the rooftops

And you’ll see Wroclaw right in the palm of your hand.

5 reasons to move to Wroclaw

5 reasons to move to Wroclaw

5 Ws: When, where, what, why, Wroclaw. One story.

The story of one gypsy girl, who’s looking for HER place in this world, or 5 reasons to move to Wroclaw.

1. When

Let’s start it from the beginning. A year ago I moved. Again. It was spontaneous. As always. I lived in Asia. In a 14-million city named Guangzhou. I’ve been staying there for 4 years, and was planning to stay there for another 4 years or more. But… Well, we all have this “but” from time to time. For me that “but” was the edge. I literally left everything, bought a one-way ticket and said “goodbye” to my 4-year Asian life.

5 reasons to move to Wroclaw

2. Where

I moved, and moved, and moved. First it was Dubai. An amazing city, full of sand, money and oil. And with the same feeling of loneliness as in China.

Then it was Ukraine. But staying there for a few months, I realised that I DON’T want to live there anymore.

Next, came Poland. So here we stop for a while, because this is where I am at the present. In the city of Wroclaw. And I like it. This is the first of 5 reasons to move to Wroclaw.

5 reasons to move to Wroclaw

3. What

What was the second of 5 reasons to move to Wroclaw? I became a student. Again. In the age of 27. With two Master’s degrees. Well, frankly speaking, it wasn’t the plan for my future life, I was spontaneous as always.

For Ukrainians, Poland is a way to stay in EU legally and without preparing too many documents. This is our “bridge” to Western Europe. And to be honest, Europe suits us more than Asia, I believe because of the similar mentality. And this is number three of 5 reasons to move to Wroclaw (or another EU city).

5 reasons to move to Wroclaw

4. Why

Well, it’s difficult to say. This is the question I ask myself all the time. And I don’t know the answer.

I like to travel. I’m addicted to new emotions.  Of course, “travelling” and “moving” are not the same things. So, moving from country to country, from part of the world to another, I’m looking for a place, where I could settle down. The place, where I could feel safety, appeasement and happiness. I think, I could sacrifice many thing to find MY place. One more of 5 reasons to move to Wroclaw, isn’t it?

5 reasons to move to Wroclaw

5. Wroclaw

I was afraid to move here. Like a city citizen is afraid of moving to a village. You can’t imagine how it is to move from a 14-million city to a “city”, that has 600 thousands people. 14 000 000 and 600 000. So well, I was sarcastic a bit calling Wroclaw “city”, for me it sounded like a village.

But Wroclaw swept me off my feet. Totally. I fell in love with this city. I fell in love with its narrow streets, its impromptness, its affability. Wroclaw combines the history and the technologies, the “old” and the “new”. It made me speechless from the very beginning. And these are my 5 reasons to move to Wroclaw.

5 reasons to move to Wroclaw

And maybe one day it’ll become a place, where I’d like to settle down…
