Impressive Needle near the Centennial Hall. No information boards near it so we read up about the history afterwards. Reminded me of a space rocket! Travelled by number 10 tram from city centre which stops outside the Hall (only 3PLN 40 single)

As we were visiting the park it is inevitable that you pass this space age spire. It serves no useful purpose and never really has in the past either. Pointless but intriguing.

The Soviets built this metal spire in 1948 on a concrete plaza between the Centennial Hall and Four Domes Pavilion in order to celebrate regaining control of its territories. By 2005, this spire had became a national historic monument. Our city tour guide enjoyed pointing...More

This is a large statue or sculpture right by a park outside centennial hall in Wroclaw. It's ok but not that interesting.

Igilica - the spire is an interesting construction and a place to take pictures. nothing really exciting

While there is a lot of interesting history connected to it, the needle itself as a monument is just dull and, ironically, pointless. The whole area around the Centennial Hall is very nice though.

Despite its historic significance, this is ultimately just a tall metal needle. It does not merit a special trip, but if you're visiting Centennial Hall, the large musical fountain pool behind it, or the Japanese garden, then stop by to have a look.

This site is under construction and is looking all the worse for wear. I walked there on a cold day and it looked even bleaker than usual but there was nothing to see.

This is Historic place from UNESCO list. It is also good place for walk or ride because of nearby park. Make sure to walk around to see it form different angles.

Iglica is a needle-like monument. It was built in 1948 and was 106 metres tall and is now a bit shorter after renovation. Its like something you expect to see in a Tintin adventure. The nearby Hall has an interesting video about its construction. Solidarity...More
