“Top Attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2011

This is must for all visitors to
Wroclaw. Tranquility, attractive river location and interesting architecture. Only a short walk from the market square, passing the university on the way. A place to admire and to reflect.

“Ideal place for a romantic Valentine's Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2011

In my opinion, Ostrow Tumski is the most beatiful part of Wroclaw. Plenty of old churches are located here, including double level collegiate. This is one church built on another. Another important building is the Christian Cathedral. However, the most important reason why it is a great place for a romatic meeting is the Bridge with hundreds of padlocks securing love. You come here with your love, close the padlock and throw away a key to the river. Most of padlocks have written names of lovers. On Ostrow Tumski there is a lot of banks near the Odra river with great view on this part of the town and routes for romantic walks. Perfect place for celebrating the Valentine's Day.

“go look at all the lovers padlocks on bridge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2010

The bridge of Most Tumski is about 10-15 minutes walk from the main square but it is worth the walk to see the beautiful view of the river Odra from the curving path on Sand Island on the way. There is a boat ride at Sand Island also but i think only available in warmer months. The bridge itself is very pretty and has an amazing number of engraved padlocks from lovers about to be married, the story goes you put the lock on the bridge and throw keys in water and your love will last forever. if that is not enough, you cross the bridge and the beautiful cathedral of Ostrow Tumski comes into view, if you visit nothing else in Wroclaw then visit this. It is as beautiful inside as outside but the best time to see it is at night as it is lit fantastically, Obviously just make sure you are comfortable with wandering round Wroclaw at night as it is a little off the beaten track.

But it is a very romantic and beautiful part of the city.
