A must see in Wroclaw. The walk over to cathedral island is great along the river. The island is full of history with some very impressive churches. There is a nice bar to stop in along the way too.

A must see in Wroclaw. Beautiful churches/Cathedral with fascinating history. So romantic - buy a lock to attach to the bridge. Three keys, one for you,another for your loved one and seal your love by throwing the third in the Odra River.

Take the time to go to the island and see all of the churches. From walking over the bridge, to seeing the churches and viewing Wroclaw from the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist tower! They just don't build new building with such splendor.

The Rynek may be the functional heart of Wroclaw but here, on Ostrow Tumski, you can find its soul. For a thousand years this has been the seat of the Archdiocese of Wroclaw. As such, most of the buildings are maintained and used by the...More

Such a beautiful place, it's full of history from different times and, of course, gnomes. An important point to visit in this beautiful city.

There isn’t really a set time, it’s when the sun sets. If you google what time ‘dusk’ is, it was about 15 mins before that when we were there
