Everything about Cathedral Island is a must see. From walking over the bridge, to seeing the churches and viewing Wroclaw from the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist tower! Give yourself plenty of time to visit and soak up the beauty of it all.

This area is far less busy than the market square area, so it's generally peaceful as you visit the various churches and cathedral. You can wander without a map, as the tall buildings are an easy reference point, and the trams stop locally.

Wroclaw is interesting to me because it was founded by the Bohemian prince Vratislav - the father of St.Vaclav. Interestingly, the historical part of the town was mainly on the island of Tumskirchen.

Visited her as apart of the walking tour. There are several churches/cathedrals next to the river. There is also the famous Tumski bridge which has thousands of padlocks attached to it. Definitely part of Wroclaw you just see.

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
