Pretty little island

Not much to see or do on the island, but visit the church and perhaps take a few pictures, but worth the walk if you are staying at the city central.

Lots of greenery and places one can rest. A lot of churches as well in the area. Not to mention also a love lock bridge ;)

Walking in this part of the city, day or night, is a special thing. If steet musicians are playing classical music, it is magical. The views from the Catherdal are amazing. The texture and essence of Wroclaw.

This is a great city with a lot of history. So glad I visited and tour. The Cathedral Island has several old churches and other interesting buildings.

Beautiful and serene. We stared our walk through the city here. You will not be able to take photos in the cathedral but take the steps up the tower for a great view! You can read more on my blog. http://www.paperparasols.net/2015/07/dwarf-hunting-in-wroclaw-poland.html

We visited the island and cathedral before beginning our walk through the city. Musicians were playing as we walked toward the cathedral which added to the serenity.

Cathedral island is about a 20 min. walk from the Old Town. On crossing one of the bridges onto the island you find the atmosphere peaceful and relaxing. The beautiful old churches and the gothic cathedral of St. John the Babtist is really worth a visit. We took afternoon tea at a lovey old café with shortbread and jam very... More

One of the places to see in Wroclaw and with a great historical background, located on a river island but just accessible on the streets and bridges. Can be walked to from old town easily.
