This huge cathedral is one of the main monuments in the city of Wroclaw, and it's certainly very impressive. You can visit the Cathedral any day, just make sure to avoid going when Mass is taking place. It's worth going inside and seeing the stunning interior as well. In the warmer months you can also gain access to the observation deck, getting incredible views over the city for a very reasonable price. If I visit again during summer I'd definitely be sure to do this.

This is perhaps the city’s most impressive building and is instantly recognised by the Gothic designed double-spires that loom large over the area of Ostrow Tumski. It’s a wonderful looking cathedral from the outside, especially from the rear of the building, and is equally impressive once you get inside its walls. During the summer months you’re able to get an elevator to the top of one of the towers for beautiful panoramic views over Wroclaw.

Here is the main cathedral for Wroclaw. It's in the Old Town and is just as lovely and beautiful as that island itself. Of all old churches in town, don't skip this one.

Otherwise known as the Wroclaw Cathedral is a gothic cathedral located on Cathedral Island. The cathedral has been rebuilt many times but is still a stunning structure that is not to be missed.
