What is it like to live in Wroclaw? Would you recommend it? What is the city like?

Wrocław is a very pretty city, close sufficiently close to visit Central Europe, in particular Germany and Czech Republic. It's a city full of young, possibilities and wonderful views. I would totally recommend spending the Erasmus here, lots of international students and a great atmosphere, magic near Christmas (if you can stand cold ?).

What is the student lifestyle like in Wroclaw?

A lot of culture as well as parties! I’ve found ESN guys really enthusiastic and so many things to see just outside your door. If you want to visit the city, don’t miss the Walkative experience.

How much does it cost to live in Wroclaw?

I paid 1200 PLN for a single room in a flat near Renoma shopping center all included. Say other 200 PLN a week for food and drinks, and around 2 PLN for buses, trams and e-scooters (I found Jakdojade app very useful for transport).

Is it difficult to find accommodation in Wroclaw? Is there any advice you can give?

It’s not easy, I admit, and prices are getting higher (as some Polish friends confirm). If you don’t mind staying with others, I would suggest to take a room in your university dormitory. Overall, Rynek is easily reachable with any transport means.

What is the food like? What are your favourite dishes?

Wrocław has plenty of international restaurants, but my personal ranking of Polish dishes is: 1. Soups (of any kind, but bigos above all); 2. Pieroghi; 3. Kiełbasa. In general, pig and beef meat, cabbage, potatoes and onion are must to try.

What places would you recommend visiting in Wroclaw?

Market square, Cathedral island and lovers’ bridge, the Witch’s bridge, the students’ island, the ZOO, Hala Stulecia and many others. I really appreciated walking in the parks around: Zachodni and Szcytnicki are wonderful to get rid of stress.

Is it good to eat out in Wroclaw? Can you tell us your favourite spots?

It is very nice indeed. Just to give some names: Konspira and Setka for Polish food, Bernard for Czech, Pizza Si for pizza.

Is the nightlife good in Wroclaw? Where is good to go?

The city is full of clubs and pubs. For the first, I would suggest pasaz Niepolda and Galeria Neon; for the latter, you must go to Wojciecha Bogusławskiego.

What advice would you give future students heading to Wroclaw?

Be open to new experiences and have fun. Polish people might seem a bit close, but they are in fact very welcoming and you will discover a wonderful country and you won’t regret.
