Trip to the oldest part of Wroclaw
After the Wroclaw Market Square, Tumský ostrov is the second most visited part of the city. It was a real island before the blind branch of the Odra fell. This area is considered the oldest part of Wroclaw. Here you will find the highest density of churches in the city, including the most important cathedral of St. John the Baptist. The walk itself is relatively short, because the area is not so large, so if you do not walk further into the botanical garden
View of Tum Island
Be sure to start the walk on Piotr Włostowice Bulwar, from where there is perhaps the most beautiful view of the churches on Tumski Island. There is also a cruise ship dock.
Locks of love at the Tum bridge
As it is forbidden to put castles on the famous Tum Bridge, they are put in love on the railing just in front of it.
Apart from the Tumský Bridge, there are other iron bridges over the Oder and its branches – for example, a tram runs along the two Mlýnské bridges
Collegiate Church of St. Crosses and St. Bartholomew
We cross the Tumski Bridge and after a while we are at the second most important church on Tumski Island – St. Bartholomew. In front of him is a beautiful statue of St. Jan Nepomucký.
We continue along Cathedral Street to the largest local landmark – the Cathedral of St. Jan Nepomucký
The interior of the cathedral
The interior of the cathedral is really impressive. It is also possible to climb the cathedral tower for an interesting view of the city.
View of the Tumski bridge
From the cathedral we can continue south to the gardens or north to the botanical gardens.
Evening walk to Tum Island
It is worth going to Tumský Island not only during the day, but also at night, when all the churches are nicely lit.
