The Cathedral and Island is a must see. The inside is very ornate and well worth the visit. My son found out that the stairs in the tower are not as long as it looks since it leads to an elevator where he got a beautiful view of Wroclaw.

One of the oldest part of Wroclaw. Magic place where you can travel in the past. Cathedral, a lot of sculptures and a this guy! Every evening man lit lanterns like in the old times where there wasn't electricity. Even during the day you can rest in cosy coffee shop.

A magic place for a walk with somebody you really like. A lot of old churches and small streets. Do not miss the Botanical Garden. You may also want to climb the cathedra - a great view of the city.
