Landmark Tourist Spot
As you admire the elegant townhouses lining Market Square (Rynek), bear in mind that at the end of World War II, this area was little more than a pile of bricks. A symbol of Poland's ability to rise from the ashes, this square underwent careful restoration after the war. See a replica of a medieval pillory used to flog people for over three centuries. Take in the variety of architectural styles, ranging from Baroque to Art Nouvea. At the center of the area, visit the Gothic town hall, considered a masterpiece of medieval architecture. The historic building houses a museum and a basement restaurant. To visit Market Square (Rynek) and other attractions in Wroclaw, use our Wroclaw vacation route planner.

Where to stay in Wroclaw

The best way to visit Wroclaw in style but without breaking the bank is by planning your visit for the weekend, when many hotels within a stone's throw from the old town offer discounted prices for their finest rooms. Close to the city center you can also find many economical guesthouses, which provide access to common cooking and dining areas, and often offer bicycles for rent. The area north of the old town caters to university students; its good-value hostels are an ideal choice for budget-conscious travelers.
