A magic place for a walk with somebody you really like. A lot of old churches and small streets. Do not miss the Botanical Garden. You may also want to climb the cathedra - a great view of the city.

A great place to walk through and see some of the various older churches and buildings. Peaceful setting with the river and gardens nearby.

Not much to see or do on the island, but visit the church and perhaps take a few pictures, but worth the walk if you are staying at the city central.

Lots of greenery and places one can rest. A lot of churches as well in the area. Not to mention also a love lock bridge ;)

Walking in this part of the city, day or night, is a special thing. If steet musicians are playing classical music, it is magical. The views from the Catherdal are amazing. The texture and essence of Wroclaw.

This is a great city with a lot of history. So glad I visited and tour. The Cathedral Island has several old churches and other interesting buildings.

Beautiful and serene. We stared our walk through the city here. You will not be able to take photos in the cathedral but take the steps up the tower for a great view! You can read more on my blog. http://www.paperparasols.net/2015/07/dwarf-hunting-in-wroclaw-poland.html
