Just fantastic. An architectural miracle considering it was completed in the 13th century. Beautiful inside and a great place for contemplation and quiet

Beautiful Cathedral located on one of the islands. It's worth visiting, beautiful architecture inside the cathedral. Go up at the top of the tower to see the whole of Wroclaw. Stunning views.

Lovely church and it was great to attend Sunday Mass there. The building is beautiful and it forms the main part of Ostrow Tumski - (Cathedral Island)

Love this Cathedral and you can go to the top to have best views of the city. Lift available which in itself is an antique. Well worth the visit.

The two towers that rise sky high were awesome.Did not have time to go inside the Cathedral but at night the lights highlighted the structure even more . Churches are many in Poland, but this took ones breath away.

The photo near the church shows it just after WWII when the Russians bombed it while trying to liberate Poland. It's amazing how the people restored this 1000 yr old piece of architecture. Make sure you go to the observation deck of the tower, you will not be disappointed.

This is a must for the view from the top, it was fantastic. you have to climb 46 steps before the lift to the top of another 16 metres, which in your pocket failed to mention, so you have to be able to do the steps. just breath taking viwes of teh whole city

Another beautiful place in a city full of them. This is the largest church because John the Baptist is the city's patron saint. Go to the observation deck at the top of the tower for stunning views of the city and surrounding area.
