See for yourself.

Advent markets Wroclaw

This city on the river Odra was founded in the 10th century by the Slavic tribe of Silesians and soon after it was conquered by the Polish king Měšek I. Subsequently, the city was replaced by many kings, princes, dukes, bishops and emperors, which is why it was known by many names. Besides Wroclaw, another frequently used name was the German Breslau.

Today, Wrocław is a bustling university city and the center of Polish information technology, often called the Polish Silicon Valley. Advent fairs are held every year in the picturesque historic center of Wroclaw, to which thousands of visitors not only from Poland, but also from the Czech Republic go.

Program of the Wrocław Advent Fair

Jarmark Bożonarodzeniowy Wrocław, offering a variety of goods, can be found not only on the Rynka , or Main Square, but also on the adjacent Świdnicka and Oławska Streets and on the Salt Square, Plac Solny in Polish.

One of the most interesting symbols of the Christmas market in Wrocław is the Christmas gnome . Just touch his cap three times and probably all your dreams will come true. But beware, this dwarf appears in the square only once a year.

Walking around the square, you will find stalls offering traditional Polish food such as pirogi and smoked cheese, but the market has more international stalls where you can get Hungarian langoustines, Dutch pancakes, paella dishes and many other delicacies worth trying.
