It is in an island, a very beautiful place to spend your time. You can go to the top of the cathedral tower to see all the city (about 60m high). Pay attention to the images of some places after the world war.

Our family spent 3 days in Wroclaw and Cathedral Island is the place where we returned again and again, to walk its bridges and streets and photograph it in day and night, and after the rain created puddles for capturing reflections. We bought locks and added them to the bridge, tossing the keys into the river. A lovely, romantic part... More

There is quite a bit to see here - Cathedrals with history and legend. Botanical gardens are also very picturesque if you have some time. Costs approx £3 to get in.

Stayed here. It was beautiful and removed from the hubbub of downtown Wroclaw. There are gorgeous gardens adjacent to the cathedral - be sure to check them out.

Wander the island and enjoy the tranquillity and views. The cathedral is magnificent and the view from the tower (with elevator) wonderful. Only a couple of places to have food or drink though.

Admire the red brick gothic style reconstruction in this area, demolished during the war and visit the impressive cathedral. Have a look at all the photos, showing how this area was left behind just after WW II. Have a nice stroll around and back to the centre.

ONE of the top places to be seen in Wroclaw especially in summer or spring time by nice walk. Since being in Cathedral church go to the tower by elevator to have magnificent Wroclaw panorama
