We walked to the Island and it was a beautiful walk. If you have the chance walk over the bridge with all the locks on it. What a wonderful display of love!

We spent an enjoyable afternoon wandering around this part of town and especially enjoyed the photos at various spots showing how it looked during the war

I didn't explore this island until my last day and have to go back soon to continue exploring it. It is full of churches, and you can get in a lift to the top of one cathedral, for amazing views. Really puts it all in perspective from up there. The island has such a calm feeling. Hard to believe that... More

We had a lovely day exploring the island - so many beautiful buildings wit lots of amazing stained glass. We took a boat trip from the island only 17 zlts ( that just a little over £3) which lasted 50 minutes- amazing! Well worth a visit.

Ostrow Tumski is one of the kind place. Based on partially island part of Wroclaw city, offers amazing visit sites and very specific atmosphere. Seeing this place is a must for Breslau sightseeing.

Just over the bridge from the main square is a lovely quiet "wander about" area - the churches are not spectacular but there is a noticeable change of atmosphere from the main town. We visited the Cathedral and took photos from the top of the tower and visited the gardens between rain and enjoyed coffee in a little cafe while... More

A quiet island with many sights. It's very nice to casually walk around taking in the sights. Be sure to see the "lock" bridge, where couples put a lock signifying their love and then throwing the key into the river.
