The walk across the bridge is beautiful. By the summer the work will be completed around the river and will look really chic. We didn't take the first right toward the cathedral and walked a little further to the main roundabout and it was an amazing culture shock of boarded graffiti covered buildings. Interesting to see how far the city... More

Beautiful island in the middle of the city, with a magnificent cathedral, great for a walk after visiting the central square and doing a bit of shopping. Great views of the river, too.

We walked along the river to the island more by accident than design. Looked like a place of interest. There is an air of tranquillity here. It is quite of course without the traffic but there is more to it than that. The buildings and cathedral are impressive. There was snow on the ground when we were there which added... More

We enjoyed walking around the island and surrounding area for under and hour or so. I imagine it would be more fulfilling with a proper tour so you can get the history of the island but we didn't have time to organise that so just ambled around. Worth checking out if you have time and go for that guide if... More

Nice place to learn about local history and medieval times. Ask for guide, visit churches, walk through bridges and enjoy

The place is specifically good as it is surrounded by monasteries and great cathedral. You will meet some priests and nuns walking around or young seminarians running to the classes dressed in black mantels. It reminds me a bit of Hogwarts from Harry Potter. Extremely mystic and spiritual place.

It's one of the most beautiful parts of Wrocław. Great for couples. There is a bridge full of padlocks on the guardrail - you know the symbol of love...

Before my visit I thought it'll be nothing super special but I was wrong. It's the oldest part of Wroclaw and you can feel that spirit. It's like a island with old buildings and one huge incredible church. It's quite and mystic place for relax and walk. You should also go up to the church tower. From there you can... More
