One of the major advantages of renting a car in Wroclaw is that you aren’t constrained by the public transportation available in the city. Though the public transportation is widely available with multiple tram lines and numerous buses offered, it is often slower to take public transport than it is to drive yourself in Wroclaw. Groups and families especially benefit from renting a car, as it will be much easier to get around in a car than it would be to hop on and off the bus to get between your destinations.

Like many European cities, Wroclaw’s history dates back hundreds of years and so does much of the underlying infrastructure in the city.

Parking spaces, especially in the historical areas of town, may also be a little too small for such large vehicles.
