A city with a coat of arms composed of 5 different ones, reflecting 5 different historical periods. Over its history, the Wrocław has changed hands countless times: its founder was Czech, then it was conquered by the Poles. Later, it was taken back by the Czechs, who were then annexed to Austria. Then, Prussia took it from Austria, and then Prussia became Germany. And this is when World War II started… Sounds like a mess, right? 

Because of all those processes and their location in the heart of Europe, British historian Norman Davies once described Wrocław as Europe’s microcosm. He said that everything happened on the old continent at some point happened here.

Walk with us through this charming city full of buildings that are silent witnesses to its long and complicated history. Wrocław is the key to understanding the complexity of Europe’s history. So, let us puzzle it all out together during the Old Town Wrocław FREE Walkative! TOUR.

On this 2h 30 minutes’ FREE Walkative! TOUR you will see:

  • Main Square with its historical buildings, among them late gothic Town Hall

  • Solny Square – auxiliary market of old Wroclaw

  • Jatki (the old butcheries) and Prison Street

  • Ossolineum – one of the oldest Polish cultural foundation and publishing house

  • Wrocław University

  • Market Hall – early 20th century food hall

  • Ostrów Tumski (the oldest part of Wrocław) with John the Baptist Cathedral

  • and much more…! 

After walking around the Old Town we recommed taking World War II & Jewish Wrocław tour and Dwarfs & Communist Wrocław to understand the history of Wrocław better!

Meeting Point
Aleksander Fredro’s statue in the Market Square - look for the guide with yellow umbrella!

We have done several tours around Poland and this one unfortunately did not engage us like the others we did in Warsaw, Gdansk and Krakow, all of which were fabulous. This one asked people to guess answers to questions which did not quite work.

Wroklow is a fascinating city steeped in history. Nationality switches, takeovers, political change, religious influence, city name changes. it all happened here and Michael, our tour guide explained everything. Really worth taking this tour if you are new to Wroklow.

We (Family of 4) went on the Old Town Tour with Matt and found it very informative and was a great introduction to an Amazing city. Matt’s knowledge of the city was incredible and he delivered it in a really easy listen. Matt pointed us in the right direction, to other hidden gems of the city, which added to the experience of Wroclaw.


Very nice and informative!
