Wroclaw is a very safe city filled with colors and lots of really nice places. I didn’t feel observed or anything like that at any time, the polish are very respectful, a bit cold harder but that’s all. I didn’t see or heard anything about robbery and stuff like that.

Loved traveling solo to Wrocław! - first solo travel trip, felt very safe - didn’t experience night life but had long days in the Summer - stayed at Korona Hotel Market Square right in the middle of Old Town (~$60/night) - walkable everywhere - public transit very easy to the train and airport using google maps - most people spoke at least a little English - went to the markets in the old town every morning (local vendors selling things until 12pm) - INCREDIBLE pierogi place right under the hotel - spent 4 days, 3 nights and had plenty to do just walking around

Wrocław is a beautiful city. I was there in July and I really liked it. I regret not spending more time there. I highly recommend visiting Ostrów Tumski, the Main Market Square, and the Panorama of the Battle of Racławice Museum and eating at the Milk Bar (delicious food). It's a very underrated city.

I loved Wroclaw. Honestly, my favorite thing was just walking around. I recommend paying attention to the dwarf statues during the walk. Cathedral Island was beautiful and definitely worth a visit. The Wrocław University Museum was really worth visiting, as well as the panorama museum - I am not a war history enthusiast, but the panoramic museum really moved me.

I was in Wrocław for three days and felt very safe there. I really recommend the Old Town and searching for dwarfs, visiting the Racławice Panorama, eating at any restaurant in the Solny Square, stopping by in the Aula Leopoldina, Marianum Oratory, and the meridian line.

I absolutely loved Wrocław. It was my favorite place when I was in Poland. I was there only for 2 days, but I just walked around and looked for dwarfs. I found the riverfront and wandered through beautiful streets.

The city is truly magnificent, colorful and very peaceful. Its brick buildings give it an incredible charm. The city is also known for its "Dwarfs". There are no fewer than 280 dwarfs scattered throughout the city. You can have fun looking for them all, and a map for dwarf hunting is available at the tourist office.

I think it is quite safer than many big or even medium sized cities in Europe. Even though there's hardly any danger of being kidnapped, robbed, mugged or assaulted I'd suggest ladies to travel with something like bear mace to protect themselves just in case. Also, I'd refrain from getting very drunk at clubs or getting into any verbal or physical fights with drunk people in and near nightclubs.

Wrocław is fairly safe for women. Of course I would not recommend going out alone at 2am around bars but if you're at least in two's then you should be good. During the day and late evenings, it is nice. Taxis are safe, I wouldn't recommend bolts or ubers since they are not as regulated as taxis. There is a nice hostel you can always stay at in the main market place. Public transport is also fairly safe, remember to have the ticket cashed though. From this to do I'd recommend the water museum and zoo, also Japanese park! Around May/June we get a museum night all over Poland and you can go to all sorts of museums everywhere for free for a whole day or the weekend :)
