Friendly places for pets in Wroclaw

Wrocław has currently over 350 animal-friendly places. You can take your friends to many restaurants, galleries, museums and shops. You don’t have to leave your dog at home anymore. But spend your afternoons and weekends with him. All branches can be found in the Internet by entering the password: Wrocław Pets Welcome.

SHOPPING CENTRE

In Pasaż Grunwaldzki in Wrocław you can enter with dogs to about 104 shops for over 2 years. Owners with pets can enter shops, eat meals in the restaurant area and bowls with water can be found in front of the gallery building. This is the first animal friendly gallery in Wroclaw friendly to animals. Dogs over 10 kg need to have a muzzle only, and all animals must be on a leash.

Two other galleries followed the Grunwaldzki Passage. “Renoma” and “Galeria Dominikańska” are also animal-friendly. The same rules prevail in them as in the pioneer shopping centre.

Galeria Wroclavia, despite its proximity to the PKP and PKS, is not so conciliatory. Animals can only enter if they are guide dogs or animals that are very small and can be carried on their hands. However, not all stores allow to visit them with animals. Permission must be issued by the tenants of individual stores.

MUSEUMS

Some time ago, the Museum of Architecture in Wrocław granted permission to introduce animals. The institution changed its regulations due to an incident that happened in their museum. Museum staff found a homeless dog at the entrance to the Museum. Since then, the Institution has become friendly to pets.

PLAYGROUNDS

In Wroclaw you can also take your pet to playgrounds – created especially for dogs. The number one is a playground for dogs in Grabiszyński Park. It is the largest playground for tetrapods and the square is 1000 square meters. In the square there are various obstacles that will help to spice up the fun, and will serve as a good basie for learning tricks. The place is free-of-charge and the park is opened all year round.

Good playgrounds for animals are also the squares in Tołpa Park and on Górka Słowiańska.

If you are planning to come to Wroclaw, don’t hesitate and take your pet-friend with you. Wrocław has become a friendly place for animals.

Free walking tour – no boring tour guides

 

The idea of Free Walking Tour  has been around for a while, but started to be more popular nowadays. It’s a relatively new way to discover Wroclaw compared to the traditional tour concept.

A Misconception about Free Walking Tours

The word ‘free’ has obvious appeal to budget-conscious travellers but it’s also a word that can ring alarm bells.

Here’s a piece of advice from an experienced tour guide who did many FREE tours: A good FREE walking TOUR is interesting and useful even for locals, because a good FREE walking TOUR guide spends a lot time exploring the city, he knows hidden spots and places to show and speak about, so a tour will be surprising both for visitors and travelers and locals as well.

Plus there is nothing to lose apart from the calories you’ll burn with walking. FREE walking TOURs can`t be boring because their based only on donations!

Free walking tour available in several languages: English, German and Polish. There are also paid tours: CRAFT BEERS OF WROCLAW, FOODS OF WROCLAW – PRIVATE TOUR, CENTENNIAL HALL PRIVATE TOUR, OLD JEWISH CEMETERY PRIVATE TOUR, STREET ART TOUR.

Trip with old tram

old tram

If you like trips around Wroclaw, this is the topic for you.

An interesting offer in Wroclaw are the trips of old trams. This is possible with the organization “Towarzystwo Miłośników Wrocławia” and “Klub Sympatyków Transportu Miejskiego” (Urban Transport Enthusiasts Club).

The city of Wrocław has the oldest system of electric trams in Poland.  Most lines lead from the center to individual districts. The length of the routes is about 190 kilometers.

Special routes are available for tourists. You can choose four different routes for travel: A B C D. By going along the routes you can see many interesting historical and modern places of architecture. For example:
Racławice Panorama  , Centennial Hall , Japanese Garden , Opera , National Forum of Music  and many others.
Route maps are located below in the picture:


The courses are divided into a guided tour or without. Of course, a guided tour is more interesting. While traveling, the guide tells you about the places we see.

Traveling by tram is a great fun for children. That is why it is a very good proposition for whole families. The cost of travel is also not high. We buy tickets directly on the tram:

For example –  prices for route A and B:

Normal Reduced Family
One-way 8,00 zł 4,00 zł 16,00 zł
Return ticket 12,00 zł 6,00 zł 24,00 zł

The central station where we can start the trip is the stop at the opera. This is the place where the puppet theater is located. Here you can wait for the arrival of the tram. During this time, we can admire the city’s architecture.

For those interested in more detailed information about the historic transport in the city of Wroclaw, I refer directly to the website of Urban Transport Enthusiasts Club. On the website you can see exactly all routes. You can see photos of trams you can travel. We can also read about interesting events related to urban tranportation.

I cordially invite you to such an old tram ride because it is worth it:)
