Best residential areas in Wroclaw to live in?

I am planning to move to Wroclaw from Warsaw in a couple of months and wanted to know which are the good residential areas to stay. I am looking for newly developed, high class, modern, luxury apartments or houses with covered car parking, kids play areas and shopping facilities.

Any suggestions? Please also suggest some good agencies who I can approach to help find one such place to stay.

Many thanks!

Biskupin is probably the best area, but very expensive for houses, some apartments are reasonable but they are high rise blocks usually. The better parts of Biskupin are very green and clean. That area would be my choice if money were no object.

If looking for a rental, I have been unimpressed with most agents. However, if spending big buck$ they may take more interest in which case most will seem fine.

Anytime. I was there again recently and I just love the place. Leafy, convenient, unlike most other parts of Wrocław where there might be greenery but there's aircraft noise or other noise and bustle. Sure it's not perfect, nowhere is. But much of it reminds me of parts of Surbiton or Richmond :) If ever I get a decent income here I'd happily rent or buy in most parts of Biskupin. It just feels like home, although unfortunately it isn't (yet!)... :O)

I can concur.. Biskupin is really nice, green and good communication ( though right now . I like the surroundings of the Hallera street near the Grabiszyński park as well.

Does Biskupin have an expat community and international (English) schools and day care center? Any idea how I can go about looks for a place there? Any website or agencies I can contact?

I don't really know much about the smaller community angle there, all I can tell you is there is a big noticeboard at the end of the tram line for tram 2. Lots of info on that board if it's still there, which may give some insight if a Google search doesn't. International schools for children are certainly elsewhere in the city, I don't know about Bis. Hopefully someone else can give some guidance on Bis life.

I think that there is just few international schools in Wrocław, so gather their addressees and search for apartment nearby if it's important to you.

Correct, there are a few English schools and most of them are down south - especially the British and American school.

Yet there are, in my experience, quite a few foreign nationals especially Americans in Biskupin. Whenever I'm there, I always here native English people in shops. S Wroc, not so much.

I lived in Klecina for a bit - a sub district of Krzyki, nice area. I always found that as soon as you crossed the river heading North it looked a bit 'well' poverty stricken, more so than the South of the city.

The area around Grabiszyńska is not too bad if you're looking for something with fairly cheap rent not too far from the Rynek.

I am not looking for anything cheap nor something near the center. I am looking for a good residential complex which is probably enclosed and secured with covered parking, play areas for kids within the complex - something similar to Marina Mokotow, Eko park or Nowy Wilanow in Warsaw.

Although my work place is in the centre, I don't mind driving a few kilometres as long as the place is good.

Merged: Which area of Wroclaw do you recommend for living?

Good evening,

My husband, my dog and I are planing on moving to Wroclaw in 2016. We would like to rent an apartment on a clean, quiet area, close to parks or gardens so I can walk my dog and exercise, close to public transportation too becouse I don't think we want to buy a car. What area do you recommend that has theese advantages?

Thanks a lot for your answers.

Jeff, Chula and Pam.

I lived in Szczepin-Mikołajów and loved it. Anywhere near the Zachodnia or Plac Strzegomska tramstops on Legnicka is ideal. The best place to live in the whole city as far as public transportation is concerned. You even have a train station very conveniently located in the neighborhood. And good shopping. Very quiet, and pet and kid friendly. The buildings may not be the most attractive, but the neighborhood is very convenient, nice and safe. And you can easily walk to the city center.

I'd say somewhere around Park Grabiszynski. You'll get a very nice and quite big park. A pretty big but not too big shopping mall is close by. And there are several trams that go straight to the city centre in ~15-20 minutes.

Merged: Place to live with Family in WROCLAW

Hi All
I am new to the forum.
Will be soon moving to Wroclaw by December with family.
Can any one please suggest good neighborhood to live with family near to Galeria Dominikańska.
Also please let me know which broker agency to contact for renting apartment.

Your help will be highly appreciated

Sorry to break the bad news but not really any of them. Although polish are nice kind people, very eager to please, hospitable, they are approximately 20-30 years behind the Western world in terms of most things.

Merged: Preferred residential location in wroclaw?

What would be preferred location for expat to stay @ Wroclaw? Considering ease of access to markets/supermarkets/public trans.
Of course not in middle of market/city, may be quiet place meeting above requirements.
Also, does all rent-out apartments are fully furnished?
Recommendation with tentative accom+util charges highly appreciated...

Good day!!

Hi Sabyrall,

I'd say most apartments are fully furbished except for the ones aimed at students - these usually have 2 beds per room and are rather spartan in terms of furniture and facilities. That's usually mentioned in the description. In case of the ordinary ones you'll get everything in the flat.

Ogrody Hallera is a nice apartment complex, really nice flats, a big park is very close, medium sized shopping mall and a tram which gets to town's square in ~25 minutes.

The prices are higher in comparison to others. Cheapest flat will be around 2500zł including bills, like this one:

You can find other nice places around Wrocław, especially around Grabiszyński Park. The closer to the city centre you'll get less green areas, but closer to town's squre..

There are much cheaper places for around 2000zł in older buildings as well.

Merged: Nicest areas of Wroclaw

Could someone with knowledge of Wroclaw please tell me what the nicest regions of Wroclaw are? We're looking to move to a neighborhood with nice new houses and/or apartment buildings where the neighbors have good jobs and are family friendly. Ideally, this would be an area with clean air, meaning a very low level of cigarette smoking and wood/coal smoke from neighbors' chimneys and factories. Any ideas?

Is there such a thing in Poland as a non-smoking apartment building where no smoking at all is allowed anywhere on the premises?

I have never heard of such a thing and doubt very much that it would exist (though I think Poles are now a little more polite about their smoking than Germans are).
