I love the architecture in Wrocław, around the stunning Cathedral Island complex there are many beautiful buildings, facing Cathedral Island is the Cathedral Of St Vincent And St James,one of the oldest and most historic churches in Wroclaw.
Founded by Henry II The Pious in 1240 ,this beautiful place of worship over the years has dramatically changed in appearance, originally a church constructed in the Romanesque style of architecture but later on reverting to a Gothic style of architecture that is so pleasing on the eye, during the bitter Battle Of Breslau in 1945 this church was severely damaged, the tower was destroyed, major walls collapsed the the once world famous Hochberg Chapel destroyed, post war and especially between 1999 - 2013 the church and chapel were painstakingly rebuilt to leave us this stunning cathedral, if you're in the area its a church to most definitely check out and easy to locate on Plac Nankiera.

Cathedral Of St Vincent And St James is one of the oldest churches in Wrocław.
Founded by Henry II The Pious in 1240 possibly earlier, built for the Franciscans in the Romanesque and Gothic style of architecture so popular back in the day.
Enlarged and beautifully decorated in the 14th & 15th century and between 1662 and 1674 the church interior was exquisitely redecorated to make it one of the most beautiful churches in Breslau.
During the siege of Breslau during WW2 the church was severely damaged, the tower collapsed as did some of the walls were the treasures within were either destroyed or looted,during Easter Sunday 1945 the famous Hochberg Chapel was also nearly burned to the ground but starting from 1999 till about 2012,2013 the church and chapel were reconstructed and restored to its former glory .
We were heading to Targowa, Craft Beer & Food and this beautiful church was across the road and made for some great photographic opportunities and is most definitely well worth seeking out.
The Church is found on Plac Nankiera,it's only a short walk from here to Cathedral Island.

Cathedral of St Vincent and St James, the cathedral of the Greek Catholic community. Though mostly Gothic and unadorned, it holds a beautiful Baroque chapel on its southern side.

The picture with those people comming out of the sidewalk is located nearby the Railway station. Not around this Cathedral. Cathedral itself is amazing.

The Cathedral of St. Vincent and St. James[1] also Church of St. Vincent, (Polish: Kościół św. Wincentego, German: St. Vincenzkirche), is the seat of the Greek Catholic cathedral of Wrocław in Poland. This church has a really beautiful chapel, where a polish prince was supposed to be buried. But when they opened the sarcophagus, it was empty and no one knows where he is now.
