Wroclaw Market Square

Vacation Travel Guide
Wroclaw Market Square featuring night scenes and heritage architecture

In the heart of Wroclaw, this lively plaza overflows with restaurants, shops, museums and history. Appreciate stunning architecture and mingle with local residents.

One of the largest of its kind in Europe, Wroclaw Market Square truly encapsulates Wroclaw’s slogan as “The Meeting Place.” Always humming with locals, students and visitors, it is the perfect place to relax for a few hours. Marvel at the meticulous reconstruction of buildings destroyed in World War II completed by local residents and others who restored the square to its former glory. Notice the attention to detail that includes a recreation of the stone pillory that was used for public punishments for more than 300 years.

Stroll around the edge of the square to appreciate the diverse architecture, from Gothic to art nouveau and everything in between. In the center is the Old Town Hall, whose spires and redbrick construction remain a masterpiece of medieval architecture. Stay around to watch its astronomical clock tick. Step inside to appreciate the Museum of Burgher Art, which proudly displays the work of the generations of Polish townspeople who turned Wroclaw into one of Europe’s premier cities. For a trip back in time, head down to the basement, home to one of the oldest medieval restaurants in Poland.

Gaze up at the statue of Aleksander Fredro that stands at one end of the square. Fredro was a Polish poet, comic playwright and actor who wrote down many traditional Polish fables. His image replaced that of Kaiser Wilhelm, whose statue stood here until the end of World War I. For good luck, rub the nose of the replica of E. M. Geyger’s bronze bear that stands on the southern side. Enjoy a drink or a meal at one of the many terraces on the square. Pamper yourself or your travel partner at the stunning Plac Solny, where you can pick up a bloom from the 24-hour flower market.

The Market Square is the heart of Wroclaw and easily accessible from anywhere in the city. Ride here on the tram line that rumbles down the street only one block away. The square is always bustling, day or night, and is perfect for a taste of Wroclaw’s hospitality and atmosphere.
