Ostrow Tumski has more to offer than just a beautiful cathedral. Although it is home to the offices of the local archdiocese, it also houses the gorgeous botanical gardens of the University of Wroclaw.

Walk here easily from the main square. Bridge covered in padlocks was pretty. Cathedral and several other churches located here. Gas lamps located here.

enjoy walking to the Island from the main town centre, it is only a short distance. The churches are amazing and the Tumski bridge is well worth a visit.

Pretty buildings, charming little parks and cobbled streets make up the Ostrow Tumski old town. We had a nice walk, visited St. John's and finished off with coffee and pancakes at Love & Chocolate near the Tumski Bridge. Very nice walk.

Probably the nicest thing we saw in our time. Spectacular once going dark. If you get there at dusk you might see the man lighting the gas lamps over in the area.Just a lovely lovely experience.

The whole area, including the churches, is a must to visit when in Wroclaw. The walk along the river leading to Tumski bridge,the bridge itself, the road from there up to the cathedral lined with historic buildings, and inside the cathedral are so beautiful and interesting.

and very nice island with a beautiful cathedral and very impressive the bridge to get there is also very original; lots of pictures to take around this island But one piece of advice : don't spare your time further than the island after the cathedral there is nothing to see except the botanical garden; the suburb is quite poor and...

Walked through on a chilly and fresh November sunny Sunday. Amazing to do so, the place has a great atmosphere, even for a heathen such as myself. The don't half build 'em big, in Poland. Full of history, throughout, and beautifully restored little area. Carry on round past the Seminary (which is a beautiful building) round to the Botanical gardens... More

Well, I found two Karnale in the area so it made it even more beautiful to me. It is not easy finding those little things.
