The city is called Microcosm by professor Norman Davies due to being a part of different countries and its location in the middle of Europe. Davies said that everything, what happened in Europe, at some point happened in Wrocław as well: wars and religious struggle, wealth of trade city, Nazis and WWII with almost total annihilation of the city, becoming a part of communist block to final jump into freedom over 25 years ago. Modern Wrocław is one of fastest developing cities in Europe with rich culture and open, welcoming people. If you want to find out how all of this happened, simply join our tour!

Since most dinner’s in Poland start with soup, it’s only right for us to mention Zurek - a typical Polish soup that’s different for every region. Most Zurek will contain Polish sausage, pork, bacon, as well as various vegetables, potatoes, and eggs. It’s sometimes serviced in a bread bowl.

What people are saying about Wroclaw

Overall rating

4.8
(1,301 reviews)

The trip was very successful, the young Guide (a student of the Wrocław University of Science and Technology) provided us with a lot of interesting information, beyond that indicated in the audio guide. A polite and communicative young man. The perfect tour route to see the most important things in the city and decide what we want to explore further on our own.

We went on a trip with Maciej and not only was the tour cool in general but I would say the tour guide was the best I’ve had after being on 20+ tours worldwide. Very friendly, knowledgeable and organised. The castle and the tunnels were very interesting and the church of peace in Świdnica was so beautiful. I highly recommend this tour.

The committed and knowledgeable explanations of the driver/guide in German as well as the additional opportunity to visit the university church.

Brilliant experience the driver was an absolute gentleman. The tour was very interesting. Thank you

Really enjoyed this tour. Great overview of Wroclaw
