Wroclaw is served by Wroclaw International Airport just 10km from the city centre and it is a hub for both domestic and European flights. The 406 bus will take you from the airport to the city centre during the day while the 249 operates during the night. Wroclaw is also a major hub in the Polish rail network with several trains a day leaving to all the large Polish cities. International trains also travel to the likes of Hamburg and Prague . The A4 motorway allows for a quick connection by car to Upper Silesia and Krakow as well as Ukraine and Germany. Getting around the city is easy with plenty of buses and trams.
For a real taste of the local cuisine make sure Pierogi is at the top of your list. Delicious dumplings with a number of tasty fillings, such as potato and cheese, meat or cabbage and mushrooms will be on every menu. 'Bigos' is another local favourite – a traditional stew of cabbage, meat and pureed tomato is considered by many to be Poland’s true national dish. Other culinary delights to watch out for include 'Chlodnik' (the Polish version of gazpacho soup) and 'Rosol z kury' (a chicken broth often served with noodles).
Wroclaw loves a big event and throughout the year you will find plenty to get your teeth into. The Festival of Polish Contemporary Music in February showcases the latest in classical music while Port Wroclaw Literature Festival in spring features seminars, forums and discussion groups with poets and authors. Wroclaw Non-Stop in June and July is an ambitious affair supporting over a hundred different cultural events from urban survival camps to Portuguese folk music. Add to this the Wroclaw Guitar Festival in November and the Era New Horizons Film Festival in July, there is truly an event for everybody.
There are around 220 bridges in Wroclaw, going over the Odra River and its tributaries. Before WWII the city had 303 bridges but many of them were destroyed during the war with some being later rebuilt.
