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.

Mill bridges

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

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.
