Zgorzelec Travel Guide: 32 reviews and 94 photos

We came here on Easter Saturday on a day trip from Dresden to Goerlitz. Zgorzelec used to be a suburb of Goerlitz before 1945 in what was then Schlesia. In 1945 the Soviets gave the other side of the Neisse river to Poland but for a long time not many Poles settled here. Only after the Goerlitz contracts of 1950 the town was planned. Since Poland joined the Schengen treaty you can walk freely over the border.

BTW, my things to do tips are in the order of our walk.

Pros and Cons

    How interesting to just be able to stroll into another country across the bridge like that! I like the colourful houses :-)

    Nice page! You got to see much more of the Polish side than we did. And we only just noticed that my own Zgorzelec page was mislocated (can wombats blush?). Cheers, Russell
