Wrocław Pergola

2022-08-26

The Pergola at the Centennial Hall in Wrocław was built in 1913 and quickly became a popular destination for walks, as well as a concert venue.

These days, the Pergola features a multimedia fountain right in the centre. The pergola consists of 750 columns overgrown with vines, surrounding the multimedia fountain. The place remains popular among tourists and residents alike, who come there in droves and use the picturesque views as backgrounds for their photo shoots.

Noteworthy attractions at the Wrocław Pergola:

Pergola's biggest attraction is the Centennial Hall, which is a sports and entertainment hall designed by Max Berg. It is the only site in the capital of Lower Silesia entered on the UNESCO World Heritage List. You should also check out the Four Domes Pavilion – a branch of Wrocław's National Museum showcasing works of contemporary art. Another must-see attraction during a visit to Wrocław is the Wrocław Zoological Garden – the largest site of its kind in Poland.

The Pergola is located at the outskirts of the Szczytnicki Park, the oldest park in the city. There, you can see the historic wooden church from the turn of the 16th and 17th centuries, which was brought to Wrocław on the occasion of the Centennial Exhibition. Along with the Pergola, the Japanese Garden was also established at the same time – you can find it right next to the site. The Garden is an original Asian enclave, with architectural elements and vegetation typical of traditional oriental gardens. Crowds of spectators are drawn to the Pergola by the multimedia fountain shows with colours and unusual music.

History of the Wrocław Pergola

The Wrocław Pergola was built as part of the Centennial Exhibition in 1913, designed by architect Hans Poelzig. It is shaped like half of an ellipse, which surrounds the artificial pond at Centennial Hall. The 640-metre-long structure is made up of 750 columns, which are covered along their entire length by a truss overgrown with vines.
