Wroclaw Things to Do: 443 reviews and 1,139 photos


The church "on Piasek" is a Ghotic construction built between 1334 and 1380. Today it no longer reflects the richness of the Baroque style it one possessed - the fire in 1945 destroyed most of the ornaments in the church.

Renovated interiors with high Gotic roofs and the singing of the monks make it one of the special places in the city. To your right there is a chapel for the blind and deaf with a special all year moving display SZOPKA which attracts children (from 10 am till 6 pm).

Directions: The Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Sand Island is situated on the east end of Wyspa Piaskowa (Sand Island).
