The Wrocław Cathedral is the heart of the so called Cathedral island, the old centre of the city. It forms the religious centre of the over 1000 year old Wrocław. In order to do it justice with its long and impressive Polish / German / Silesian / Bohemian history, I decided for an – at least for me – unusual processing style.

Ostrów Tumski, zwany również “Wyspą Tumską”, jest najstarszą częścią Wrocławia. Jeśli ją odwiedzisz, to rzeczywiście zwykle wjeżdżasz przez most, ale szybko zdajesz sobie sprawę, że nie jest to już wyspa. Dziś jest to “tylko” dzielnica starego miasta z dużą ilością budynków sakralnych, takich jak kościoły, katedra, pałac arcybiskupów i wydziały duchowe.
When you visit the Old City of Wroclaw you will discover many historical buildings and cultural treasures as well as a buzzing nightlife. One of my favourite pieces of architecture is the Tumski-Bridge. Every time we are in Wroclaw we take a walk to the so-called „Cathedral Island“, for which this beautiful bridge has to be crossed.
The day was sunny and it was a pleasure to climb up, even though there were many people who were going with us. Our tour started at 1000m of altitude and ended at 2000m to Kasprowy Wierch. In two third of the way, we reached Hala Gasienicowa – a meadow in between mountains. As soon as I saw the composition of the wooden cabin with high mountain scenery I knew it was worth to carry ten kilos of camera backpack with me.
Some photos are spontaneous captures of the moment. Others, however, can require quite a bit of planning. This photo of the Warsaw skyline with the Palace of Culture and Science as its centerpiece falls into the latter.
There are many jokes and controversies about Pałac Kultury i Sztuki (Palace of Culture and Science) in Warsaw. However, it’s difficult to deny that over the last decades it became an icon of the capital of Poland.
