Nice gothic cathedral restored after WW2. On the right side there is a gate and staff member who can let you to the back part of church (some small gratuity is required but it's worth). You can see presbytery with beautiful stalls and two unique chapels - german and italian baroque.

Nice church to see when you get to Wroclaw, You can also climb the tower which gives great views of the city and was cheap.

There is a great city view from the tower. You will be taken up there by elevator so no need to climb. No need to book access to the tower it in advance, though I think I high season it might be popular place. Cathedral is beautiful inside and worth visiting indeed.

Very nice view from the alley in front of the entrance. The back of the cathedral is a mixture of different architectural styles - very uncommon.

This is an impressive cathedral, both externally and internally. We were particularly impressed with the stained glass windows.

See the old photo outside to see how this building was so badly damaged during the war. The inside is impressive. You can see this building against the skyline.

We attended Mass on Sunday and I found the interior quite striking. The large stained glass windows behind the altar and the alcove chapels together make up for an impression as one may expect from a cathedral, even if it is not a large one. Candles can be lighted for loved ones, however all were sold out when we visited.
