DOG PARKS IN WROCLAW

If my memory is right, in 2016 there was a vote for new ideas that would improve various aspects of Wroclaw. The list included renovations of courtyards, skate parks, renewal of school fields and dog parks. Personally, I voted for the zone for dogs, because I’m having one. I knew that it would be a perfect place for everyday fun for him.

Dog parks finally became very popular and attracted the attention of many people, which of course helped to increase their number in Wroclaw. As a result, there are eleven dog parks today, spread around the city. The parks are located on Nadodrze, Ołbin, Srodmiescie, Niske Laki, Bartoszowice, Krzyki, Gaj, Zakrzow and Grabiszynska. Dog park are nothing more than a field surrounded by a fence, with two entrances. It’s usually covered with sand. The area contains ramps and obstacles for dogs and benches for their owners. The dog park is also equipped with special waste bins, because it’s very important to keep the place clean.

DOG PARK IS THE BEST PLACE FOR YOUR PUPPY

The main advantage of the park is the ability to let the dog off a leash. We no longer have to worry about the possible escape of our dog or the dissatisfaction of other passers-by, because they are in locked park. It is also the perfect place for a dogs meeting! Thanks to the dog parks, we can satisfy the needs of our pet in dealing with other dogs. We also have the opportunity to meet and talk to the owners of these dogs with whom we have so much in common – so this place is available to everyone, without exception!

FOLLOW THE RULES – IT’S OUR DOG PARK!

Rules for the use of parks for dogs are the same for each facility and written at each entrance. There are no workers in the place who would check whether they are respected. So users have to watch over their dog and their safety. The main idea of ​​the park is to have fun! That’s why observing dog behavior is so important. It is advised not to feed other dogs, keep them on a leash or bring toys that may not always be good for other pets. A dog park is a PUBLIC place!

Wedding photography In Wrocław – top 6 places

If You are a beginner photographer or even no, You probably thinking about a good place to take a photo your models. In Wrocław are a lot of place which u can use to create a wonderful wedding, couple or test photo. Lets check it. I will show u my top 6 places list.

1.  Centrum Edukacyjno-Rozwojowe Pałac Wrocław Pawłowice UPWr in my opinion is the best place. Whatever You need, You can find it there. Its a very charming space. The palace itself is very representative and every woman being there can feel like a princess and every lady or bride wants to feel that way. In addition to the magical building we can find there beautiful forest, lake, bridge and garden. For the most part, these are the most-anticipated sceneries for wedding sessions. If you have not had the pleasure to be there, take the camera and do it! I guarantee you will fall in love with this place!

2. A lot of people thinking about the pictures in an old house. When your couple ask You about perfect place with a spiral staircase You can take them to the tenement house at Świdnicka Street without remorse.

On the corner – next to pizzeria Niezły Dym, you find a house with such stairs. If You want go inside wipe the call to any number on the intercom. There are many offices in the tenement house so I’m sure that someone will open you. However, the place is quite dark, so you should remember about the light up the place. So, The second place is: An old tenement at Świdnicka Street.

3. My 3rd favorite place to take photos in Wrocław is Dunikowski Boulevard. It is very close to the center  and thus, you can clearly see from this place Ostrów Tumski – one of Wroclaw’s most popular place. The boulevard is located on the river and has many green terns. This place is great also for hen parties. Below are some examples of how space can be used. The panorama is really wonderful!

4. Not far from Dunikowski Boulevard there is also a great place, for a change a bit in the urban style. If u have a little bit more of time, u can calmly walk to the… OVO Wrocław. Yes, OVO, this is my proposal number 4. Why? The building is so modern, but on the square u can find a lot of green places, hammocks, benches, blooming trees. All this can be used as a wonderful background and props during the session.

5. If you dream about a little more romantic atmosphere, it seems to me that there is no more ideal place than a forest. And there are quite a lot of those in Wroclaw. My favorite forest is the Osobowice Forest -number five. It is really big, it’s located right next to Odra river, which gives you the opportunity to use shaft  for sessions, and you can also find some really beautiful inside: hidden bridges, wooden houses or even … a football pitch!

6. The last, and at the same time giving the same possibility is place is…market square! And more generally  – the centre. If u want o take photo from the roof – u can go to The Monopol hotel. The tenement houses, seen from above, give a bit of mystery and show the city from a beautiful perspective. A bit further we can ride on the carousel in the Theater Park and feel like we are children again.  This short route can run through Oławska street, which is one of the most characteristic for Wrocław. There is a beautiful fountain there, which can also be used during the session. And if we talk about fountains, it is from Oławska, through the town hall, a straight road to the most charctricist fountain in Wrocław – the one in the very center of the market… By the way, beautiful tenement houses in the background give the photos a unique atmosphere.

Free places in Wroclaw

The following article presents the most-liked free places in Wroclaw. They are a great alternative to spend time without paying any costs.

The first place worth visiting in Wroclaw, if we do not have too much money, is Hedge Maze, in the park on Brochow. The maze will provide us with many positive impressions, as well as an adrenaline rush, because it is not so easy to get out of it as it might seem. It is a great option for people who like to rack their brains in the open air.

Another proposition, if you are looking for a free place in Wrocław, is the Ossolineum Garden. It is a place designed for people who need to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life from time to time. Since the garden is located in the center, its location is great, and what’s more, it allows you to really calm down and gather thoughts for further action.

If there are fans of water, lights, and music among us, it will be a great idea for them to choose the Multimedia Fountain situated in Szczytnicki Park. Throughout the whole spring-autumn season, at every full hour, we can enjoy this beautiful spectacle completely free.

Another idea for a free, yet interesting place in Wroclaw, which will allow us to spend time nicely is a racetrack at Partynice. It is a place that evokes emotions thanks to the horse races, which take place here regularly during the season. The time spent here will provide us with entertainment and a dose of emotions that will influence us positively. I would recommend taking a closer look at this discipline.

The last of the free places chosen by me in Wrocław is Słodowa Island. Despite the fact it is rather thought to be a place adapted to young people, it also makes a great impression on tourists. It is a small island located by the Odra River within the Old Town. Its relaxed atmosphere allows unwinding after a hard day. However, the atmosphere of this place cannot be described in words, so I recommend you to visit it yourself in your free time.

In the article above, I tried to put together a variety of places, which combine a very important feature for us – you do not have to pay for them. So if you have not known what to choose so far, then I highly recommend visiting one of the described places.

Where to go kayaking in Wroclaw?

If you love water, sun, nature and beautiful architecture and at the same time you are in Wroclaw, this article is for you. Because here you will find some information about where to go kayaking in Wroclaw. So if you want to get know better Wroclaw, there is no better way than from the surface of its biggest treasure: The Odra River.

One of the beautiful views of an old architecture from the riverside that you can admire while kayaking in Wroclaw on the Odra River.

First of all you need to remember that the river can be dangerous and that its current can be really strong. That is why we suggest you to use existing marinas. They are arranged in whole Wroclaw. The Odra river near those marines is very calm and its current is very gentle.  Of course you need to be really responsible and remember about wearing your life jacket and that kayaking near weirs and dams is dangerous and definitely forbidden.

The finest marinas in Wroclaw to get  kayak are the Zwirzyniecka Marina, the Zoo Marina and the Bay of the Gondolas.

The Zwierzyniecka Marina

The Zwierzyniecka Marina is located near The Zwierzyniecki bridge. So if you pass the bridge just turn right before the zoo fence. You can get single and double or triple kayak for 15 PLN per hour. From this harbour you can go towards the Szczytnicki bridge and even further  almost to Warszawski bridge (before this bridge there will be a weir on your way). From your kayak you will see trees, parks and maybe even wild birds like heron or crane.

The Zoo Marina

The Zoo Marina offers you a double kayak for 15 PLN per hour. It is located under the Zwierzyniecka footbridge near zoo. On the other hand there is also a beach and a beach bar. From this place you can go kayaking even to the Ostrów Tumski (under the Grunwaldzki bridge) or to the Opatowicki wire to the other side. It is a great marine, because you can choose to watch the old town with great architecture or The Biskupinski Park with a lot of green and trees.

The Bay of Gondolas

Similarly, also a great place to go kayaking in Wroclaw is the Bay of Gondolas. You can get a double kayak here for 15 PLN per hour. Likewise from the Zoo Marina you can go from here upstream to old town islands or downstream to the Opatowicki wire. Also a great possibility is  The Olawa river. It is very calm small river and really great idea for lazy afternoon ride in green.

To clarify it is possible that when you borrow a kayak you may be asked to leave your personal document as under cover. So for example it can be an ID card, a driving licence or a student card. However any place you choose, please remember about your own safety and that the life jacket that you get from your lenders, is to put in on and not to put it next to you. Have a great time!
