Nice view from the Penitent's Bridge between the two towers of the church
Aug 2020
We have not climbed any other lookout position in Wroclaw, so no comparison base there but this one did offer nice view of the city too (plus a very special dwarf sculpture at the top, on the Penitent's bridge), while my wife enjoyed the organ practice downstairs for free.

Stop by this church
Feb 2020 • Couples
This is a church right off the city square in Wroclaw Poland. It has great history described in posters throughout the church and shows before and after pictures of the church in the war. A must see is the trip to the bridge between the towers, and yes there are Wroclaw gnomes up there. There are quite a few steps to get up the towers, and grated walkways several stories up that may concern vertigo visitors. But still I really recommend this unique journey up the towers, you not be disappointed. The low cost of entry is donated to the restoration of the church, which from the looks of it would be well appreciated. A definite required stop by anyone passing thru Wroclaw.

TLC Needed
Feb 2020 • Solo
Very peaceful chapel to pray in, but in need of some much needed TLC. Unfortunately I didn't get to the top as I am disabled but the church is self is pretty but feels a tad neglected.

So many churches
Jan 2020 • Couples
I don’t think we have visited a place the size of Wroclaw with so many churches so close together. They are also of many different religions. This one is a bit dull looking from the outside but has a red and green tiled roof, I think only the nearby Cathedral is the same but I am not sure. Better inside than out, you can also get to the top and there is a walkway affording some terrific views over the old town.

Not the most ornate church
Dec 2019
The church isn't as impressive as many others in Europe but still worth the time to visit especially if you climb the tower to get a view from the Witches Bridge.

Stunning!

An absolutely stunning piece of art! This gothic themed cathedral is so beautiful - the architecture here is incredible. An amazing building steeped in history, it’s well worth a visit when in Wroclaw

Another church in Wroclaw
Sep 2019
We couldn't believe just how many Cathedrals and Churches there were within a square mile in Wroclaw. This one we passed walking to Market Square. It features two towers in front that you can climb to the top, then there's a unique connecting bridge between the towers. we did not go to the top. Otherwise it is similar to others in the Cathedral Island area with its red brick exterior. However, the roof is made up of red and green square tiles giving it a more unique look.

Well restored
Nov 2019
Well restored church but lacking in character, like many similar churches in Poland. Very new looking inside and I would have marked it down but for the Katyn massacre window and plaques commemorating the Polish contribution to WW2. There is a viewing platform high up the building with great views of the city.

Climb the tower
Oct 2019
It was well worth the climb to the top to be rewarded with beautiful views from the bridge between the two towers. There are special dwarves up there too - female ones which we didn’t spot anywhere else!

Highly recommend going up the tower
Oct 2019 • Friends
We paid the extra to get access to the roof top via the tower. The stairs are narrow and spiral with low light. Not recommended for anyone with limited mobility. At the top of the stairs there is a lift to the top(be aware if you don't like lifts don't do it. Its not a nice lift) the views on the top are amazing.
The church its self is so beautiful with some gorgeous stained glass window.
