How to move in Wroclaw for free

It is not without reason that Wroclaw is the city of the meeting. This is even one of the slogans that advertise the city. Every day, crowds of people pass each other during a race in appointed places. How not to get lost in the crowd, how to get where you want in time? In the below mentioned article you will learn tips and tricks for free transport.

1. Go on foot.

Especially in spring and summer, a walk through the city may turn out to be one of the faster and more pleasants form of transport. However- we do not always have the time, the willingness and the strength to traverse a city that is located on the surface of 292.82 km². In case you do not have time for hiking, go to solution number two.

2. Take the bicycle, for example a city bike.

Of course, we realize that not everyone is a happy owner of a bike, which is why Wroclaw offers a solution – city bike rental. Users can use 1000 bikes located in 100 different stations throughout Wrocław. And now a quick instruction and patent for a free ride.

Register and ride

To use the WRM website, you must create an account. Fill out the registration form, accept the regulations and pay the initial payment. It’s a good investment – you pay 10 pln for the start, and then you can drive around for free, avoiding the rest of the paymant as obstacles on the bike path. How to do it? Nothing easier. The first 20 minutes of cycling is free. In order not to pay, you must change your bike before the end of the free ride. Available a large number of available stations have no problem with this mission. I want to ride my bicycle- as if it was said Freddie Mercury.

3. Public transport.

By definition, public transport is not a free form of travel. On the other hand, we rarely get anything for free. And here comes another solution for alternative free journeys. Be careful and follow the instructions. At least once a week, a list is displayed on the Wroclaw city website with a list of lines on which the inspections will take place. Every day, MPK Wroclaw inspectors work in other parts of the city and on various bus and tram lines. Thanks to the list, you can see where the inspections are planned in the coming days. Although users get a list of controlled bus and tram lines once a week, this does not exclude control in other places. So, it’s best to take a seat in the middle and be ready to run away.

As you can see, there is nothing for free. What seems seemingly free also costs us something – in this case nerves. Use the tips and enjoy the beauty of Wroclaw.

The Osobowicki forest is not much far away from the metropolis and we can easly ride here with the public transport (tram nr 24,14 or bus nr 118). This forest has not much expanded infrastructure. I think it is a perfect object for a longer walks. The hinking trail starts from the small parking and along of the road you can find a seats and rest a little. On the eastern part of forest is a small chapel, where eucharist is taking place every Sunday. Going to the heart of this forest we can find some remains of ruins from 4500-1800 year bc. After that we can find here an archery range and fireplaces. I think it’s  the most mysterious place from all forests in Wroclaw.

  • Pilczycki Forest

This complex you can find at the west side of Wroclaw, close to Kozanow and Pilczyce neighborhood. It’s really easy to go on foot. Whole Plczycki area including leas and waters is on the particular protection. Pilczycki forest is in the neighborhood of plot gardens. It’s one of the smallests forests in Wroclaw,  flat terrain all around the forest. There are no fireplaces inside the forest. If you like to relax, for example you can burn some grill and rest in nature almost in the middle of the city.

One of the most beautiful forests in Wroclaw. It’s not one of the biggest forests for sure. There is a lot of fish farms, moates, even a camp locations. Going through the forest near to the edge of the river we can find a memorial stones, beautiful bridges and we can visit the antique building museum with the remains of the borough from XII and XIV centuries.

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.

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!

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.
