Sky Tower Wroclaw Reviews
Sky Tower Nov 07, 2015
Sky Tower is a skyscraper in Wroclaw. It is the third tallest building in Poland (after Palace of Culture and Science and Warsaw Spire – both in Warsaw). On the 49th floor is a publicly accessible viewpoint which is the highest observation deck in the country. Sky Tower is facetiously called a Penis Tower because of its shape. Just look at it, it looks like one.
Wroclaw is full of shopping malls (Arkady, Galeria Dominikanska, Pasaz Grunwaldzki to name just a few) but the Sky Tower is quite special. It is the only skyscraper in the city. Despite being the highest shopping center it is still not the largest.
As a shopping mall, Sky Tower is very decent. Not many shops, not many restaurants. If I would be a resident of Wroclaw, I would not call it my favourite.
The Observation Deck, located almost on the top of the building, is listed as one of the greatest attractions of Wroclaw. Well, I wouldn’t say that. In the Sky Tower there is a lift which takes tourists to the 49th floor in less than one minute. The vantage point has room for 25 people. To get to the top you need to buy a ticket few hours in advance. I had to wait more than 2 hours for my turn. I went up but I haven’t seen the city the way I wanted. It was late October and I got my ticket for 5:30pm. I remembered that the sun went down at 6pm on the day before so I was happy that I will be able to see the city in the day light. It was the last chance. People who bought tickets after me would see the city covered by night. But I forgot about one thing. In the night between the day I arrived to Wroclaw and the day I came to Sky Tower, Poland changed the time from summer time to winter time … It gave me one more hour of sleep but at 5pm it was already dark! As dark as it would be on 6pm. So I saw Wroclaw by night! I always though that Wroclaw isn’t that big, but when I saw all these lights so far away I changed my mind.
In my opinion this skyscraper should not be ever build as it doesn’t fit Wroclaw’s skyline. Unfortunatelly it is already there, and it spoiles the view.
