Pergola in Wroclaw is built in the shape of half an ellipse. It was constructed in the early twentieth century around the pound with the fountain in the similar shape. It is located at the north-east side of Centennial Hall in east part of the city, in front of exhibition pavilion.
Pergola contains two rows of concrete pillars topped with grating on which you can spot vines. The length of Pergola is around 640 meters and it has in total 750 concrete pillars (still have to count to check if its true!)
The pound surrounded by Pergola is another interesting thing! During the summer, every single day you can watch amazing shows of the multi-media Fountain eqquipped with 300 jets, using lights and sound effects. For a change during the winter time, you can equip yourself in skates and go there for ice-skating as it is turned into ice rink.
It is a perfect place for Sunday walk with your family and friends. You can sit in the nearby cafeteria with the view on Pergola pond. Have a beer and grilled sausage in one of the bar located next to it.
Beside that in the vicinity of Pergola there is Japanese Garden along with the Szczytnicki Park.
How to get there?
As it is pretty out of the city, take a bus or tram (145, 146, 0, 1, 2, 10) and get out on the stop HALA STULECIA. Pergola is located just behind it.
You can also take a bicycle and have a nice ride within the park.
