Relaxing family times can be had in the lushly green Botanical Garden and Japanese Garden or - if you prefer fauna to flora - in the Wrocław Zoo and its new Afrykarium centre, which stars sharks, penguins, and a couple of fat hippos. For a memorable dining experience for both adults and children, don’t hesitate to visit Konspira a restaurant and historical education centre dedicated to communist times, featuring a hidden room and play area for kids; follow up with dessert at the Słodkie Czary Mary sweets shop, where you can see candy being made before your eyes.
If the temperatures soar and your family threatens to combust, Wroc has a couple good places for splashing around, and even if the skies open up with torrential rain, the historical Municipal Swimming Pools (worth seeing for the interior decor alone) and the Aquapark - one of the country’s finest - remain open. Keeping with the water theme, the ‘city of one hundred bridges’ also has plenty of opportunities for paddling around its numerous waterways, or letting yourself be ferried around onboard an excursion boat. Meanwhile, the award for most kid-friendly museum would probably go to Hydropolis, a new discovery centre dedicated to, well, water.
But that’s certainly not all - Wrocław has an entire lineup of places made specifically with children in mind, from elaborate playgrounds to educational centres and a vintage-style carousel: we list those below.
