Wroclaw

Centennial Hall & Surrounds

Once you’ve finished ogling the Old Town and Ostrów Tumski, there’s one more district of this fine city that visitors will be poorer heading home without having seen. Just east of the city centre lie a clutch of attractions surrounding the historic Centennial Exhibition Complex, including Wrocław’s only UNESCO site, the country’s oldest zoo, the tranquil Japanese Garden, the tourist-luring Pergola Fountain and the newly renovated Four Dome Pavilion. Intended as a city showpiece since its creation, the area east of the Odra long held a somewhat lukewarm public standing thanks to dubious historical connotations and debatable aesthetic appeal; however recent renovations, the UNESCO nod and the addition of the magnificent multimedia fountain (operating May-October) have made it a favourite place of locals and cemented its place as a Wrocław must-see.

The easiest way to reach the Centennial Exhibition Complex is via public transport. Tram 10 can be caught from the 'Rynek,' 'Świdnicka' and 'Galeria Dominikańska' stops, or take buses 145 or 146 east from the train station, getting off at 'Hala Stulecia.' The area is also easily accessible by car, with parking available right in front of Centennial Hall.
