Guide to The Most Instagramable Spots in Wroclaw

Guide to The Most Instagramable Spots in Wroclaw

February 21, 2018

Most of you will know by now that I LOVE Wroclaw, and after just coming back from my third trip there, I think it’s about time I started writing some guides to the city. I’ve already published my guide to where to eat and drink and I have the ULTIMATE guide to Wroclaw coming very soon, but if you’re anything like me you will want to know where the most Instagramable spots in the city are.

Well don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.

Follow me on Instagram here.

Market Square/Rynek

The Market Square is the heart of Wroclaw and the place that initially made me fall head over heels for the city. With stunning multi-coloured buildings worthy of a fairy tale, a bustling atmosphere with street performers and the most incredible history imaginable. There lots of different views in the square that are worthy of the ‘gram, but here are my favourites:

The Square Itself:

How can you not want to take photos of the stunning buildings?

? Market Square, Rynek, Wrocław, Poland

wroclaw street performers

The Street Performers: 

Mainly on show during the weekends, the street performers make Wroclaw even more colourful than it already is.

? Market Square, Rynek, Wrocław, Poland

Hansel and Gretel: 

Two of my favourite buildings in Wroclaw, joined to together by an arch. Plus, aren’t the names Hansel and Gretel adorable?

? Market Square, Rynek, Wrocław, Poland

The City Hall:

Probably one of the most magnificent buildings in Wroclaw, the City Hall is right in the centre of the square and one you won’t miss, let alone can’t!

? Market Square, Rynek, Wrocław, Poland

From Up High

wroclaw view

St Elizabeth’s Church:

This is definitely the hardest of the bunch to climb, but oh boy, are the views worth it. I think there are around 330 steps all together but once you reach the top you get a stunning view of the market square below.

? St Elizabeth’s Church, Kiełbaśnicza 25A, 50-110 Wrocław, Poland

The Mathematical Tower:

Nestled in the heart of Wroclaw University, the Mathematical tower is another favourite of mine for a great view of the market square – this time it includes an incredible view of St Elizabeth’s church too. With a lot less steps than the other options, this may be the best one for those that are not as active.

? Mathmatical Tower of Wroclaw University, Grodzka 16, 50-137 Wrocław, Poland

Mary Magdalena’s Church:

Again, just off of Rynek, Mary Magdalena’s church is a must while in Wroclaw. You climb one of the churches towers to reach the bridge (”witches bridge”) that joins the two together. You can still see the market square from the top, however this time from a completely different angle.

? Mary Magdalena, Szewska 10, 50-122 Wrocław, Poland

Sky Tower:

A little further out, the Sky Tower is the tallest building in Wroclaw. Knowing there is a viewpoint at the top of the building we couldn’t resist going to see for ourselves! It’s a much bigger view than those above, but I think it’s one you should see all the same.

Food and Drink

There are SO MANY Instagramable places to eat and drink in Wroclaw that I think even if I lived there, I wouldn’t be able to visit them all. Instead, I thought I’d share some of my favourites with you (but please comment if you have recommendations for where I should go on my next trip!).

Whiskey in the Jar:

Definitely a lot more Instagramable in the Summer when you can sit outside, but still an absolute gem none the less. With an ‘American’ junkyard theme this bar certainly has a lot of character and everywhere you look there is paraphernalia to look at (you may even find one of the famous Wroclaw dwarves if you look closely).

? Whiskey in the Jar, Rynek 23-24, 50-101 Wrocław, Poland

Iggy Pizza:

Iggy Pizza is one of those places that although not entirely pretty, it has a lot of character. The set up is wooden tables, bright neon signs (my favourite has to be the one that says ‘Real Queens Eat Pizza’) and lots of plants. Definitely one to get on Instagram, and that’s before the pizza even arrives.

? Iggy Pizza, Kuźnicza 10, 11-400 Wrocław, Poland

Pogromcy Meatow:

The inside of this bar is a little dark and less-than-instagramable, however the outside is one of my favourite exteriors in Wroclaw. The windows are covered in brightly coloured drawings that certainly steal your attention as you walk past.

? Progromcy Meatow, Rynek 22, 11-400 Wrocław, Poland

NANAN:

NANAN Cafe is one that is known particularly among bloggers and Instagrammers as a pink paradise. I don’t think there is a single surface in the whole cafe that wouldn’t look good on Instagram and that’s why I love it. The food wasn’t my favourite, but I would definitely recommend it just for the ‘gram. 

?mNANAN, Kotlarska 32, 11-400 Wrocław, Poland

Chimney Cake Bakery:

Whether you’re Instagramming the chimney cake or the bakery itself, this is a must visit on a trip to Wroclaw.

? Chimney Cake Bakery, Oławska 4, 50-123 Wrocław, Poland

Cathedral Island/Ostrow Tumski

Cathedral Island is another of my favourite parts of Wroclaw as although it is so close to the Market square, it feels miles away in terms of architecture. I love the different buildings, the incredible Wroclaw Cathedral of St John and the hidden spots (that are perfect for outfit shots FYI).

ostrow tumski

On the Island:

There are an array of churches and cathedrals on the Island (given it’s name are you surprised?), as well as cobbled stone walkways, hidden gardens – the lot. I love spending a good hour or so wondering around and getting lost here, it’s so picturesque.

? Ostrow Tumski, 48-300 Wrocław, Poland

Love Lock Bridge:

To get to Cathedral Island (Ostrow Tumski) you have to cross Wroclaw’s love lock bridge. One of the prettiest love lock bridges I’ve seen, it’s definitely somewhere you should put on your list before visiting.

? Ostrow Tumski, 48-300 Wrocław, Poland

Flower Market/Plac Solny

Another mini ‘square’ just off of Rynek is the home of Plac Solny – the 24 hour flower market. This beautiful flower market is open to the public 24 hours a day, or all your 4am floral needs (??). It’s such a pretty little area that is crying out to be Instagramed, I promise. 

? Plac Solny, 50-061 Wrocław, Poland

Wroclaw Dwarfs 

The Wroclaw Dwarfs are dotted across the city and with more than 300 of them, you won’t be sure of ones to photograph! I have taken a picture of every single one I have found (to help me count how many I’ve seen) but one of my favourite photos is this one, as it’s different to the usual.

? EVERYWHERE

Have I missed anywhere?

I'M KIRSTY LEANNE

My mission is simple. I want to help change the way travel looks, showing both brands and society that plus size people really do travel too. In a community where plus size travellers are made to feel unwelcome, I want to inspire and advise people like me on how they can make the most out of their own incredible travel experiences.Join me as I share my own personal experiences, my best tips and tricks and all of the challenges I face along the way. It won’t always be an easy ride, but it sure as hell will be a fun one.

Together, we can change the way that travel looks today

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • AD | Gifted 💫 Happy Saturday! I’m going to be spending my weekend doing some housework, making my garden look pretty and trying to find ways to convince my boyfriend to take some new outfit shots for me. If there is one thing he hates, it’s being behind the camera even though he’s actually really good at it. For those of you that manage this on a regular basis, please please share your tips (I already offered a meal out, so that’s out of the question) 😂🤞🏻

  • AD | Discounted 💫 I am FINALLY getting around to writing some of my Trek America content and I’m getting super emotional reliving all of the amazing things that we did! As much as I love my home comforts, my dream would be to spend a couple of months getting Greyhound buses between as many States as I possibly can! With 9 already ticked off my list, I still have some exploring to do.... 🗺🇺🇸❤️

So, who is coming with me? 😏🙌🏻

  • AD | Gifted 💫 It’s been a long time since I posted a carousel post on Instagram but I felt like the Kennedy Space Center definitely deserved it. I mean, just look at all of those incredible rockets 🚀
•
•
Do you ever have those places where you’ve wanted to visit for as long as you can remember and then they exceed your expectations, even though you didn’t think it was possible? That was the KSC for me. It’s been just over a month since I visited and I still can’t stop thinking about how incredible the different exhibitions were. From learning about incredible American astronauts and driving around launch pads to seeing immersive replicas of both failed and successful launches, it really was an experience I’ll remember. I 100% left feeling like I could achieve anything ✨🛰

  • AD | Gifted 💫 For years I have been looking lustfully at all of the cute play suits in stores thinking that I’d never be able to wear one. Not only would they not suit me but oh my gosh, can you imagine the chub rub?! I’d written them off and decided that I’d stick to jumpsuits instead 🤷🏼‍♀️
.
.
I don’t know why, but when I found out I was going to Garorock Festival I decided that if I was going to wear a playsuit, now would be the perfect opportunity. It was going to be 41 degrees and if anything, I could pass it off as festival fashion if it didn’t look right. I ordered two, one from @missguided and one from Boohoo 🙌🏻
.
.
As you can see it DOES suit me (I think) and the chub rub? NON-EXISTENT. I’m definitely a playsuit convert and now wondering what other clothes I have written off without even giving them a chance! Co-ords? Dungarees? Bodycon Dresses? What should I try next?! 😏👇🏻

  • AD | Gifted 🌈 Do you ever find a dress that as soon as you put it on, it’s all you want to wear for the rest of the summer?! 🙊
•
•
This candy coloured sundress from @yoursclothinguk is definitely THE dress of the summer for me, especially as it’s the coolest linen material ever. It’s been so so comfortable on days where it’s hit 30 degrees (or 41, like it did in France) ☀️☀️🙌🏻🙌🏻
•
•
P.s. please ignore the sun burn, apparently factor 50 every half an hour was STILL not enough for my ginger skin 😭🤦🏼‍♀️ #yoursclothing #yoursclothinguk #psbloggers #plussizebloggers #plussizeblog #plussizeootd #stylehasnosize #plussizefashion
  • AD | Gifted 💫 I’m definitely still recovering from the weekend but it was so so worth it as I go to go to my first ever festival. The four-day Garorock festival in Marmande consisted of lots of beer and Aperol, an endless supply of glitter, incredible music and non-stop dancing. ☀️🎶
•
•
Highlights include reliving my childhood by seeing @sum41, dancing to @djsnake on day 3, discovering the amazing @christineandthequeens, listening to @twodoorcinemaclub and realising I know way more songs than I thought and the INCREDIBLE headline that was @macklemore. I’ve still got no voice because I sang and screamed so much 😂🙊
•
•
As far as festivals go, Garorock was a great first choice. It was INCREDIBLY clean (look at the lack of rubbish in my photo) and it was all pretty contained and easy to get to. Not only that, but the crowd were amazing. I’m a little worried I may have been spoilt and I’ll have a bit of a shock at my next festival, but there’s only one way to find out, right? 😂🙌🏻

  • I’ve had a little bit of an Instagram break the last five days as I’ve been living my best life in France at my FIRST EVER festival! 🙌🏻🎉
•
•
Although I would have loved to get the full festival experience by camping, the heat was hitting the 40’s most days. Luckily we had our very own Gite to stay in, fully equipped with a pool and all the wine I could drink. Clearly, I took full advantage of that🥂🍾
•
•
The festival wasn’t my only first this weekend, as this is also the first time I’ve ever worn a bikini! Despite the fact I come across as confident on Instagram, I still get self-conscious when I’m putting myself out there. I was DEFINITELY not feeling it at first, but after a bit of encouragement from @danniellelily and @absolutelylucy I felt so much better. I feel as though I’d built wearing a bikini up to be this massively scary thing for me when really, it’s not *so* bad. Here’s to way more bikinis in my life 🙌🏻

  • AD | Gifted ❤️ Did you know when it comes to the collaborations that I do, I pitch 90% of the work I have? Whether it’s pitching a product to feature, a press trip to go on or a paid post for my blog - I’m a huge fan of going out and finding my own opportunities. Whilst I know a lot of people are scared of the thought of pitching, it’s one of the main reasons l was able to leave my job and go full-time. It’s also taken me to places like Croatia, Belgium, Lanzarote and France. I’ve worked with INCREDIBLE brands, and I want everyone else to be able to do the same too 🙌🏻
.
.
If you saw my stories a couple of weeks ago, you will have seen that I launched the #bepitchperfect eBook - the ultimate guide to pitching products, payments and press trip. The guide goes into detail about all of the preparation you need to do before a pitch, ways to overcome your fears, a five-step strategy that works for me almost every time and how to stay on top of all the people you’re pitching. I also tell you how to personalise each pitch depending on what you’re pitching. It really is that detailed! 🙊💫
.
.
At just £10, it’s honestly an absolute bargain for those looking to take their blog to the next level. It’s been launched less than a month so far and I’ve already had people message to tell me some of the amazing collaborations they’ve secured thanks to my guide! 🎉
.
.
I’m so sorry that this post may have come across a little salesy, but as you can tell I’m incredibly passionate about pitching and how it can help your blog grow. If you’re interested in purchasing the eBook, there’s a link to buy in my profile bio. If you think you know someone who may be interested, please feel free to tag them below! 🥰🥰

  • AD | Discounted 💫 As soon as I booked my Trek America I started planning all of the places I wanted to visit in each location, including the #whatliftsyou mural in the Gulch, Nashville. Nashville has TONNES of murals dotted around the city, but this particular one designed by @kelseymontagueart is very very popular. In short, Kelsey has designed all of the #whatliftsyou murals to encourage people to talk about what inspires them. Of course, I couldn’t miss out on an opportunity to do the same...
.
.
✨ Traveling to new places and experiencing incredible new adventures inspires me to create new content, as well as to face my fears.
✨ My friends and family inspire me on a daily basis - whether it’s to do the best I can or to appreciate what I have. Seeing them do incredible things makes me want to do incredible things too.
✨ My boyfriend inspires me to achieve everything I’ve ever wanted to, as he’s always cheering me on and telling me I can do anything if I work hard enough.
✨ YOU! Each and everyone one of you inspire me to do the best I can when it comes to Plus Size Travel Too and travel marketing.

What inspires you? 👇🏻

  • Hi! It’s me! We’ve had quite a few new followers over here so I thought I’d tell you a little bit about me, the creator of the @plussizetraveltoo movement! 🙊🙌🏻
•
My name is Kirsty Leanne (@kirstyleanneuk) and I’m a plus size travel blogger from the UK! I have loved travelling for as long as I can remember and have been blogging about travel for just over two years (and specifically plus size travel for officially 6 months). I like cats, peanut butter and programmes about serial killers. 
As I started to become more confident with posting photos of myself of my social media channels, it became more and more obvious that I didn’t have a place in the travel industry. Nobody wanted to feature a fat girl on their platforms or in their press trips. As time went on and it started to get to me more and more, the idea for Plus Size Travel Too started. Not only is this a community for plus size travellers to get advice from people just like them, but it’s a way to show brands that plus size people do actually travel too. In the long run, I want PSTT to help brands see that they should be showing plus size travellers in their marketing materials, as well as advising them on how they can make adjustments that can make travel a lot more comfortable for plus size people. 
I want to inspire plus size travellers, just like me, to travel and have the best adventures they can. Often people let the fact they’re plus size they can’t travel and hopefully, Plus Size Travel Too will help show people that that’s just not true. 
I can’t do it alone, so I am thankful for each and every one of you helping me along the way ❤️💫
