“Beautiful Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We took the short walk here in the snow from the rynek and were glad we did. Very pretty area, steeped in history and graced with several impressive churches, including the cathedral. Definitely worth a visit, especially if you're into Polish and German history.

“Great for pictures and picnics”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

It is very relaxing, even better if you have a bicycle as you can tour around seeing everything at your leisure. The cathedral is beautiful. Im not sure if you can go to the top or not.

“Lovers Bridge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Magical spot for any couple in love. Lovers pledge their love by locking a padlock with their names on it to the bridge and then throwing the key in the river below

“Try to read Microcosm by Norman Davies...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

...before you visit because it really aids any understanding of how this city developed from the Cathedral Island. Depending on your direction of approach, you will cross a small iron bridge...with hundreds, or thousands, of padlocks attached...think about why they are there.
