Ostrow Tumski – Cathedral Island, Wroclaw

On Wednesday evening after supper, I was able to walk with several of my colleagues through Cathedral Island where several of the first churches to be built in Wroclaw still stand.  The oldest of these churches date back to the 12th century.  It was amazing to stand next to and see the detailed architecture from such a long time ago.  The island sits between two branches of the Oder river in the oldest part of Wroclaw.

Unfortunately, on this trip, I was not able to tour the inside of these churches, but hopefully I will get that chance sometime in the future.  I will highlight a couple of these churches on a different blog entry in the coming days.
