Imposing cathedral on Cathedral Island. Like most of Wroclaw rebuilt after the Second World War. Impressive interior but the best feature is the fact that you can take a lift to the top of the tower. The gas lamps are very impressive.

Located in the old town on Cathedral Island this is one impressive building. Well worth going back after dark to see it all lit up. If you time it just right you will get to see the street gas lamps being lit at dusk.
