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.

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!

Cheap accommodation in Wroclaw

Common room mleczarnia

Plannig a few days trip to another city we need a place to stay. What categories will we be guided by when selecting accommodation? Each of us has our own personal feelings when it comes to choose, the elements that I pay attention to are the location, the nature of the place, and the price. In my opinion, the most suitable option for accommodation is hostels, wchich have no exorbitant price, the atmosphere is mostly homely and it is easy to get one that is not far from the center. I’ll describe three which I had to deal with and which I can recommend for accommodation seekers in Wroclaw.


Moon Hostel

I think it’s a great place to stop when you planning accommodation with somebody. Elegant and simple rooms, equipped with TV. Common living room with kitchen where when cooking meanwhile you can play on table football or spend time with a book.
An interesting option is the possibility of ordering breakfast at a day before. Shared bathrooms, wi-fi, availability of parking. A well run website with a simple possibility
to book a term we are interested in. An important element in acommodation there
is that the hostel is animal friendly, which for me as a lover traveling with a dog lover
is a very important element.


Mleczarnia

Situated in the center of Wroclaw, it is a great option to stay in with a package of friends. You can rent a room, with lots of beds at a cheap price. The heart of the hostel is a kitchen combined with a living room made in the former, currently built-up courtyard, which gives it an amazing atmosphere. Kitchen equipment allows you to prepare almost any dish after you have purchased the right ingredients. We should emphasize the very stylish decoration, giving the impression of being at home. All day reception, shared bathroom, wi-fi, pet friendly and right next to the restaurant, with delicious food, all in the same climate.

Friendshostel

Good localization in addition two minutes to downtown, the name of the hostel is well chosen: Friendly Hostel. The handling of that place facility  were all really helpful and nice. They provide excellent information about Wroclaw and help encourage a passion for exploring city. The interior is decorated in a modern and youthful style. It has
a baggage storage, bar, parking, wi-fi. Common kitchen on the first floor. You need
to know that it can be noisy becouse hostel is located in the center od the city, it is a plus and minus however there’s a lot of bars nearby. It’s non-smoking hostel and animals are not acceptable.

The best places for photoshoot in Wroclaw

Wroclaw is full of beautiful places for photoshoots. It doesn’t matter if you preffer to photograph in more nature or urban places – everyone can find something interesting here.

A little bit of nature:

If you want to take photos in green environment you can choose one of the parks in Wroclaw. Some of them owes their names the part of the city where they are located. One example is Southern Park. In my opinion this is one of best spots for photoshoot in nature. You can find many romantic or mysterious places there. For example, in the center of the park there is a lake with beautiful terrace. The additional advantage of Southern Park is the variety of unique trees and flowers that grow there.

The second place is Eastern Park which is located between creeks of Olawa river. Due to the fact that this park is situated away from the inhabited part of the city, the swans can be seen swimming in the river here.

On the eastern side of Wroclaw there is also Park Szczytnicki. There are few beautiful bridges which are great for romantic photos. There is also one place in this park, where trees are overgrown with ivy. That gives a mysterious atmosphere to the photos. Anojther big advantage of Park Szczytnicki is its location, as it is situated close to Pergola and beautiful Japanese Garden (entrance here is paid).

City with history:

If you prefer more urban photos you can go to the market square and nearby streets. Buildings here were built in various historical periods. A good example can be the differences in architectural styles between the Anthropology Institute of University of Wroclaw (which can be seen on the photo) and the Institute of Law, Administration and Economy. They are situated on the same street in a close proximity of about 30 meters, but are built in the totally different styles.

Another place for great photoshoots can be Sky Tower. On the top of the building there is a view of the whole city. Photos taken there have more modern atmosphere.

For a different atmosphere, you can also choose Puppet Theatre in Wroclaw. It’s an exceptionally beautiful building in neo-baroque style where you can take amazing photos, especially at sunset.

There are more places in Wroclaw that are amazing, like Ostrow Tumski, Slodowa Island or Pawlowicki park but the ones described above are the best for photoshoots in my opinion.

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.
