This is a nice place to visit but I thought it would be a little more special. Certainly tranquil when we were there. I think I was spoilt by the vibrancy and grandeur of the old town. However, you really should go.

From the Odra river bank the island has a really great. Access through the Tumski bridge opens party of town with cathedral a many others sacral buildings. The island is less crowded than Rynek but not less interesting.

Little walk from Old Town is this beautiful part of Wroclaw. Many different churches/cathedrals, nice bridges etc. in this area. Also Botanical Gardens are nearby, so you can easily spend an afternoon here.

The oldest part of the city has its charm and genius loci. A cruise around the island helps you to explore this quarter from a different perspective. Also, on Szienkiewics St. No. 10 which is just a stone's throw away there is a store offering great ceramic products made in Boleslawiec.

This is a great little island with amazing history and beautiful sights, we walked around there several times and it was great each time. I would recommend going during the day and at night, you'll notice different, new things during both times. Also, try to catch a Wroclaw Free Walking Tour to there to get a taste of the history...

Tumski is worth the visit with all the church histories and nice bridges. Nice place in Wroclaw and very near to the old town.

I can easily consider the Ostrow Tumsky (Cathedral Island) the jewel in the crown of Wroclaw. The area feels very medieval, and the architectural complex is well preserved. The beautiful buildings, cobble streets and a magnificently high cathedral make this place perfect for an afternoon light stroll. The oldest part travels the visitor, (although it is hard to tell you... More
