Is 13000 PLN gross salary on a permanent contract enough to live in Wroclaw, Poland? I am moving there from India. My wife will also join me on dependant visa and will be searching for a job here. What will be net salary as private medical insurance is included in the package?

All the best with the move. 

The cost of living in Poland generally is relatively low in comparison to many other EU countries. Whether your salary is enough for you is dependent on your lifestyle choices, accommodation preferences and spending decisions. Will you choose to live in the city centre or just outside the city?

A single bedroom apartment in the city centre in Wroclaw is currently estimated at around PLN 2300, and a single person's monthly costs are estimated to be around PLN 2100 without rent. This would vary if your wife moves with you, and once she finds a job then this is an added source of income. You can find out more about cost of living in Poland here.
