While Kraków may be Poland’s most common tourist destination it is far from its best – as proven by the magnificent gothic metropolis of Wrocław. With architecture straight out of a Grimm’s fairy-tale it’s easy to believe that there is magic hiding in this little-known gem of a city. In fact, if you look carefully when you’re visiting the zoo, shopping or even returning to your hotel you might see one of Wrocław’s famous dwarfs, although there are rumours that no one has ever seen them all.
Unfortunately, as with any country in Northern Europe, there’s always a high chance of rain in Wrocław, even in the summer. However, the probability of precipitation also makes the city a fantastic winter destination as you’re almost guaranteed to get some snow when visiting – plus the city is famous for its Christmas Markets so you can be sure to soak in the festive atmosphere. However, summer visitors are bound to find some great attractions too as the city makes every effort to be one of Poland’s top tourist destinations.
