Iglica is a 106 meters tall needle-like monument built in 1948. During the recent renovations, the top ten meters were removed and today it's only 96 meters tall. The monument was built by Polish Communists to celebrate the regaining control of the 'Regained Territories' after WWII.

Iglica (The Needle) is one of the most famous landmarks of Wroclaw, situated in Park Szczytnicki. It is about 100 metres high. Iglica for Wroclaw is like the Eiffel Tower for Paris- it is something you should visit and take the photo of,, even though there is nothing special about it.

This is a unique and slightly strange monument in Wroclaw. It's a spire shape and resembles a needle, somewhat reminiscent of the monument in Dublin located along the river. It's worth stopping by if you're visiting the Centennial Hall as it's very close to this. The Iglica has an interesting history and story behind it's assembly. It was created by the Communist Party after the Second World War, and originally was taller but the top part was made of mirrors and glass and was quickly damaged, so had to be removed.
