If you like old churches, or architecture, or just happen to be going for an exploratory walk, this is a good place to start. Explore the surrounding territory and you will be rewarded as well.

This is where Wroclaw is originated from centuries ago. It has a beautiful cathedral which is a must see. A few places to sit and have ice cream. The bridge that connects the city and the island is also a nice one to see. Don't consider this a visit of Wroclaw if you do not see this Cathedral Island.

From Old Town, Cathedral Island is a short walk across a very historic bridge. It is a small area - but very pretty and picturesque. Remember to go inside the Cathedral. We visited Poznan's Cathedral Island yesterday and Wroclaw's Cathedral Island is a much more quaint area.

It is unbelieveble how fine the Cathedral has rebuild. During second world war about 70 % of it was ruined. In side is lot of pictures of the Pope and the crown which he doneted to the altar.

This was a little oasis in the busy city. The lamp lighter was busy on his mobile phone which spoilt the image a little but it was still a good experience to see him light up the streets.

We only had one day in Wroclaw and we were determined to visit Ostrow Tumski. The area exceeded our expectations and is truly a "hidden" gem in Wroclaw. The area feels very medieval and is a great place to spend a couple hours wandering around. I was able to take some amazing photos here.
