You will find the entire place to be a sprawling gem and beauty that wants to be explored. There’s a huge tower soaring well above the city that would allow you to see Wroclaw in its entire splendour.
#1 Wroclaw’s Dwarfs
The city has an interesting way of expressing its artistic nature. The famed bronze dwarfs are one very whimsical way indeed. Tucked away well over the entire city, the dwarfs hunt is a true singular experience. You will most certainly want to be part of this treasure hunt and make sure that you get the most fun finding these little fellows all over the city.
In fact, they can be so bizarre that if a great apocalypse happened and they were left standing, whoever finds evidence of the previous people to live in Wroclaw might have drawn very interesting conclusions about their height and size.
The dwarfs are definitely one of the best things to visit.

Poland’s Old Towns are the most authentic way to reimagine the past and experience it in the present. They are charged with a lot of how things used to be, but in a very good way, too. The architecture is spot on and without a fault.
Poland has clearly spent millions in restoring its architectural heritage and millions more in maintaining everything visually stunning. Such is the interesting nature of Poland that you will always be able to go to the Old Cities and enjoy yourself a fair bit.
There is a lot to see here, too. From the Court House – located just a few hundred meters from this place to the Wroclaw’s opera house, which is truly amazing. Apart from that, there are quite a few other landmarks to spot, including the amazing churches that surround the entire Old Town.
Each one is more stunning than the last you have visited and we’re sure that you will find the experience greatly enjoyable.

#5 Wroclaw’s Opera House
We’ve mentioned it before and now we want to reiterate it – do visit Wroclaw’s amazing Opera House. It’s definitely one of the main places to be and if you are a tourist, you should check if there is a performance available.
To me, going to visit new cities and places is hardly just about seeing places. It’s also about “experiencing” things and spending some time in the Opera House is definitely high up on my list of to do things.

It’s specific architecture and beautiful streets will forever haunt you, so much that you will actively seek to return to it and visit time and again.
