“A very colorful market”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Calling rynek simply a market is analogous to saying "Roger Federer is a tennis player". Yes RF is a tennis player but he is also much more than that. So is Rynek. It is much more than a market place. The most distinctive thing about the place are its buildings. They are so colorful. Seems like something has popped straight out of a post card.

If you are in Wroclaw, you will certainly not miss this place. Moreover the atmosphere around the place is so nice. People are so friendly. Definitely worth a visit.

Wow. This is a fantastic spot. There are loads of restaurants, cafes and bars all around the square with well preserved and painted old building. You have to see it.

“Medieval Marvel”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

See it for yourself. You'll agree it's a 5-star wonder. Poland's main New Year's Eve celebration was held here this year with many of the country's top entertainment stars appearing on a huge stage set up in one corner of the Rynek. Why? Because this a a showcase for Poland, beautiful, historic and active. And don't forget, it houses Europe's oldest restaurant as well as a score or more others.

“Nice”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Nice square with lots of colorful buildings. Plenty of restaurants and bars. Post office is very near the tourist information stop, bought some fancy postcards and mail them straight away.
