This means that you can buy souvenirs, newspapers, magazines, books, electronic articles and groceries.
Shops are located landside and airside. The same is true for the restaurants, bars and cafés at Copernicus Airport Wroclaw. You won’t have a probem finding a place serving you snacks and light meals, but there’s no formal restaurant as such at the airport in Wroclaw.
Sleeping at Copernicus Airport Wroclaw
As the Copernicus Airport Wroclaw is relatively small, there are not many places where you could get some shut-eye. While the airport is open during the night, it’s not exactly a safe and comfortable place to spend the night. Check out this page for more information about sleeping at the airport. Sadly, there’s also no propert airport hotel in Wroclaw.
All hotels are located a few kilometers away from the airport with Dom Kosmonauty and Hotel Terminal (both three star properties) being the closest options. However, you might also sleep in the city, where you can not only find more, but also better hotels. Generally, prices for hotels in Wroclaw are rather low.

Even though Wroclaw Airport mainly caters low-cost passengers, there’s an airport lounge. The so-called Executive Lounge is used by all airlines departing from Copernicus Airport Wroclaw and is also open for walk-in guests. You might also access the lounge when holding a membership with Priority Pass or similiar programs.
Other than that, access is granted to passengers holding Business Class tickets or a frequent flyer status allowing lounge access. The Exeuctive Lounge Wroclaw is a modern and nice place to spend some time as I experienced first hand. The buffet is a little lackluster, but other than that the lounge definitely is recommendable.
