Football Trip to Wroclaw – Travel Around Wroclaw
Wrocław’s public transport system is easy to use and fairly extensive, with 120 bus lines and 23 tram lines. You’ll rarely need trams or buses to get around the Old Town, but many affordable hotels and some sights (like Centennial Hall) are located outside the centre. Major hubs for trams and buses include the main train station, Pl. Dominikański, and Pl. Jana Pawła II. Buses and trams run roughly from 04:00 to 24:00, with irregular night buses running after that.
A single fare ticket is 3zł, though note that night buses cost 3.20zł. 24-hr (11/5.50zł), 48-hr (20/10zł) and 72-hr (26/13zł) tickets good for all public transport in and around the city are also available and might be clever if you plan on riding often. ISIC or other non-Polish student ID is valid for a significant student discount, but you must carry your ID.
Most importantly, remember that tickets are not valid until you stamp them once inside the tram or bus. If you’re caught without a properly punched ticket, you’ll owe the city of Wroclaw 120zł, or 150zł if they don’t get the money within seven days, plus the price of the original ticket.

Football Trip to Wroclaw – What else to see & do
Wroclaw’s Town Hall. While not a massive building, it’s the fantastic level of detail and unusual gothic design that set this Town Hall apart from its peers. Built in the 13th century, but was continually renovated and added to over the following centuries. Luckily, it received only relatively minor damage to its roof during WWII and so remains a true landmark of the city.
The Royal Palace, together with its Baroque-style garden, now houses the Historical Museum of Wrocław. The Museum showcases the history of the city with exhibitions such as “Wrocław’s Millennium”. Royal apartments are also open to the public.
the Old Market Square is the city’s centre as with so many other European cities. Despite suffering thorough damage during WWII, the city centre was thankfully restored to its old-fashioned ways. The centre of the square features the Cloth Hall and the Town Hall, the latter being a unique specimen of Gothic and Renaissance architecture.
Found just off the edge of the Old Market Square, Solny Square is kind of a mini-version of it’s larger neighbour. Surrounded by its own elegantly restored buildings, the square’s main purpose seems to be hosting a large flower market.
Garrison Church just off Old Market Square, is said to have some of the best views of the city.
Ostrów Tumski is an island and the oldest part of Wrocław. Surrounded by the River Oder, this former garden, which gave rise to the city of Wrocław, is now featuring a number of impressive monuments. The most prominent monuments include the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist (restored after World War II), the Holy Cross and Saint Bartholomew’s Collegiate, which is a unique two-storey brick basilica. Located on the island is also the Archdiocese Museum, which for more than one hundred years has been collecting sacred art, including the celebrated Book of Henryków. Dated to the 13th–14th centuries, the book is known to feature the first sentence to have ever been recorded in Polish (the document was listed in the UNESCO Memory of the World Register). This is the only place is Wrocław where you can see a lamplighter turning on the gas lamps at dusk.
