A walk through the nooks and crannies of Przedmieście Oławskie

Przedmieście Oławskie, also known under its common name – the Triangle – is one of the most interesting parts of the city. What is so interesting about it, you might ask? Cohesive architecture, which stands out almost immediately, history at your fingertips, as well as all changes taking place before our own eyes. Justyna Kujawińska, who has had a “square in the Triangle” for several years now and writes about it on Facebook, showed us some non-obvious places in the neighbourhood, places that made her love this part of Wrocław.  

A woman on the façade of a townhouse at Prądzyńskiego 13 (corner of Łukasińskiego Street) 

A beautiful and liberated woman. She inspires me when I carry my groceries home from the nearby Biedronka store. Sure, she could use some care, but she’s still one of the most beautiful ladies out there.

Miernicza Street 

The unique atmosphere of old townhouses. One of the few streets that survived World War II almost unscathed. Featured in many films.

The butcher shop at Traugutta 99 

Pre-war tiles and always fresh meat. Keep your head up when entering the shop, pay close attention to the horses at No. 97!

Park na Niskich Łąkach and Rakowiecki Forest 

My favourite running and walking routes, which also make a perfect place for a picnic. A river, a forest and wild nature just 20 minutes away from the Market Square. 

Fredro’s finger (a plaque at the Church of St. Moritz, Traugutta 34) 

There are many churches in the Triangle, but most people have no idea that a pouncet containing Fredro’s thumb was built into the wall of the Church of St. Moritz. There is an interesting history connected with that place.

On Zmywa Confectionery (Prądzyńskiego 37) 

A delicious new place in the Triangle, with natural ingredients and perfect flavours. You should definitely try the Pavlova and London cheesecake.

Plaque commemorating the 1997 flood (corner of Traugutta Street and Zgody Square, near “Irena” flower shop) 

The Great Flood had a strong impact on the Triangle. One of the three plaques in the neighbourhood reminds people passing by the water level 20 years ago.
