On this 3-hour walking tour we will reach the very beginnings of Wrocław in the oldest part of the city – the Cathedral Island called Ostrów Tumski. This is where the Wrocław Cathedral stands, built around the year 1000 during the reign of Boleslaw Chrobry, the first king of Poland. Although today’s cathedral is a post-war reconstruction, it still contains a lot of memorabilia from the past.  Then we will go to the Old Market Square and visit the most important nearby attractions from the outside. We recommend this route if you want to see several areas of the city in a relatively short time.
