Take the time to go to the island and see all of the churches. From walking over the bridge, to seeing the churches and viewing Wroclaw from the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist tower! They just don't build new building with such splendor.

The Cathedral is not actually on an island but you usually walk across an island to get to it from the old town centre.Very confusing.

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.

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
