This was a little oasis in the busy city. The lamp lighter was busy on his mobile phone which spoilt the image a little but it was still a good experience to see him light up the streets.
We only had one day in Wroclaw and we were determined to visit Ostrow Tumski. The area exceeded our expectations and is truly a "hidden" gem in Wroclaw. The area feels very medieval and is a great place to spend a couple hours wandering around. I was able to take some amazing photos here.
Cathedral island is the jewel in the crown of Wroclaw. Beautiful landscape, with some stunning churches and cathedral. Very easy to walk to from the old town, and is definitely worth a visit. As this close to the university there are lots of students visiting, but this only adds to the wonderful ambience of the place.
This is an atmospheric area with the unique distinction of a lamplighter arriving every evening at dusk to light the numerous gas lamps all around the area . Access is across a bridge adorned with padlocks placed there by couples pledging their eternal love .
