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.
