What you'll do

We will meet in the heart of Cathedral Island, the oldest part of our city. I will tell you about the history of the island, the city of Wroclaw, and the region of Silesia, and why this is such an important part of our city.

We will then take a walk behind the curtains of Cathedral Island, exploring the Medieval history of Wroclaw, including Gothic churches, castle ruins, and historical artifacts. I will tell you stories about the backstabbing families, feuding dukes and bishops, and odd characters that have shaped our city. We will see 800-year-old ruins, the earliest Gothic architecture in Poland, and the oldest church in our city.

Eventually we will arrive to Wroclaw's grandest church: The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, where we will learn about its thousand years of history, and the Catholic's fight against pagan traditions. We will then take a walk inside the cathedral, where I will tell you about the most magnificent relics it possesses.

At the end of our tour I will take you through the two most spectacular Baroque chapels in our cathedral, fully describing their magnificent detail.

This tour will give you a uninque insight into the turbulent and confusing Medieval history of not only Wroclaw, but all of central Europe.
Other things to note
We will be entering two holy sites owned by the Catholic Church, so please dress accordingly. They may not let you in if your shoulders are showing, or your pants/skirt is too high. If it is hot, you may bring an extra piece of clothing (i.e. scarf) and then remove it when we go outside.
