Open May-August. Named after Poland’s treasured mountain lake, Morskie Oko (Sea Eye) is a splashing ground relatively close to Wrocław’s centre, quite popular when summer heat stifles the city - the real sea is far away. Located in an old clay pit (an indentation left behind after extracting clay for manufacturing), Morskie Oko was made into a proper swimming area in the 1920s and today boasts a ten hectare recreational area with a sandy beach, water slides, tennis courts, a restaurant and bar, kayak rental, and more. To add to the geographical confusion, Kilimanjaro hill is just a few steps to the northeast: this artificial hillock was made from sludge and gravel removed in the process of building a flood canal (to the immediate north) in 1913-1917. Morskie Oko is also about a half hour stroll away from the Centennial Hall and just a few minutes from the expansive Szczytnicki Park. To get here from the centre, take tram no. 33 from ‘Rynek’ to ‘Chopina’, then walk north along ul. Chopina for around 10 minutes.
Closed from September.
