As part of our road trip through Poland, we spent 36 hours in Wroclaw and for me, it’s one of my favourite places that I’ve ever visited in Poland to date (It would be hard to choose between Wroclaw and Krakow if I’m honest…Krakow has more to do but Wroclaw is prettier).

Why did I love Wroclaw so much….easy, it’s such an unassuming city; it’s colourful, fun and there are lots of quirky things to do.  Okay one of my favourite bits was that it didn’t feel like it had lost its soul to mass tourism YET!  It felt a bit like Porto did when I visited a few years ago…I do wonder how I would feel about Porto if I visited now.

We arrived late evening so Ma, Pa and Lisa headed out to explore…I stayed and rested at the apartment as a visit to a castle had worn me out earlier in the day (I was that much of a fragile princess…Dad may have had to push my bum up a hill!)…waking up as fresh as a daisy the following day we went out exploring Wroclaw pretty early….

I did love the mid-century detailing in this café; while I love art deco jewellery and buildings, mid-century furniture is my jam (I have an East German 1960’s sofa that I love that I bought off eBay earlier this year!).

Travel Tips for Wroclaw, Poland

  • Wizz Air fly directly from Luton Airport to Wroclaw, Poland
  • We stayed at this apartment which comfortably slept 4 people and the location was grand (close to the old town, free parking and on a street lined with restaurants which many were gluten free or vegan!)
  • There are a number of accommodation options available in Wroclaw…booking.com is a great starting point and there is a Sofitel in Wroclaw for a spot of luxury.
  • Wroclaw is super cheap compared to Krakow or Warsaw
  • You can walk everywhere in the city however you can take the trams or a tuk tuk tour if you wear your little feet out.
  • Take comfortable walking shoes as there are cobbled streets.
  • If you want to see the gas lamps being lit by the cape crusader then you need to hightail it over to Cathedral island prior to sunset; we arrived a good half an hour prior to sunset.
  • Looking for something a bit different for a souvenir the make sure you check out Folkstar which stocks Polish folk prints and other goodies; that’s where I purchased my yellow necklace from **Coughs** I may have it in blue and red also!  Address is Odrzańska 15, 48-300 Wrocław, Poland
  • Cafe Nanan is beautiful; great selection of cakes if you can eat gluten – address is Kotlarska 32, 11-400 Wrocław, Poland
  • The undercover Food and Flower market (Wroclaw Market Hall) is located at Piaskowa 17, 50-359 Wrocław, Poland.   There a number of gluten free options inside the market including meats, cheese, fruit and vegetable plus a shop specialising in gluten free items
  • The Anonymous Pedestrians can be found at the corner of ul. Piłsudskiego and ul. Świdnicka, Wroclaw
  • There are a few gluten free restaurants down street Świętego Antoniego, Wrocław
  • If you want to read more about my Poland adventures then here are a few more posts for ya…Dwarf Hunting in Wroclaw, Ksiaz Castle, PolandWarsaw vs Krakow, City Break to Krakow and my review of the Sheraton Krakow.
  • During my time in Poland, I struggled to find anyone that would accept an American Express card so make sure you have other options when visiting Poland.  Visa and MasterCard are widely accepted.

On our way between Katowice and Wroclaw during our Road Trip through Poland we stopped off at Ksiaz Castle and you know I’m a huge sucker for a castle.

There was a really interesting photo exhibition, the chef prior to WW2 was a keen photographer and he took photos not only of his family but also of the Princess and her children so it’s rather wonderful to see all the grandeur before it was all stripped away.

…poor Daddy may have had to push me up a hill as I was a bit worn out (castle hunting is exhausting!).

Grabbing a bite to eat and plenty of fluids, we went in search for the view point which is a good 10 minute walk away from the castle gates…wear comfortable shoes, pretty sandals get wrecked (I learnt this lesson the hard way…the ground is uneven and very dusty!)…

^^Lisa and Ksiaz Castle…if you don’t know, my little sister absolutely loves Poland.

So yes, I’ve let you into one of the stories of Ksiaz Castle but not to the other two…so the Hidden Treasure, there are a number of tunnels which you can enter for a fee and apparently they think there is hidden treasure that Hilter ordered to be hidden from the Soviets.  You may remember a few years ago when the media went crazy about the gold train, well it was around Ksiaz.

And the missing Princess…well the pretty social butterfly that was Princess Daisy died in Poland and buried however fearing that the Soviet’s would do something horrible with her remains due to her being buried with a famous pearl necklace, her body was exhumed and reburied…apparently only her family knows where.

I’m pretty sure Ksiaz Castle will pop up in the news in the future…I’m a firm believer, where there is a rumour then there is gold and just imagine what hidden treasure could be hiding in these tunnels!  You only have to read the story of the guy selling off stolen artworks from WW2 a few years ago to realise that you can never say never.

Did I love Ksaiz Castle; she is absolutely glorious outside but a bit bland inside however that is due to the history of the property.  I’m still glad we visited.

Travel Tips for Ksiaz Castle

  • Looking for more visitor information on Ksiaz Castle then check out the official website here.
  • If arriving by car, there is a main car park however this is generally full by mid afternoon and you will have to walk up the long driveway as you will need to park at an alternative car park.
  • You need cash to pay for parking!
  • There are a couple of restaurants at the gate offering meals, ice creams and drinks and a hotel if you fancy staying the night at the castle 
  • The price of entrance is 34 zloty (around £7.50pp) – if paying by credit card they don’t accept American Express; to be honest most of Poland doesn’t accept American Express so make sure you have an alternative with you or pay by cash.
  • Day Tours from Wroclaw are available or you can catch the train and then a bus to Ksiaz Castle
  • Take comfortable walking shoes…you will cover a lot of ground especially if you are walking to / from the alternative car parks and there are a number of stairs to hike up as well inside the castle.

A dwarf was the symbol of the Orange Alternative Movement; during the communist years the military would paint over any anti-establishment graffiti or public art and soon after a pesky little dwarf would appear over the military paint job.  The Dwarfs and the Orange Alternative Movement gained popularity due to their peaceful protests over the government’s censorship of free speech in Poland and soon became an icon of Wroclaw in the 1980’s.

After the fall of communism in Poland the dwarfs became the symbol of Wroclaw.
