Wyspa Piasek and Ostrów Tumski

Northeast from the Market Hall, the Piaskowy Bridge leads to the attractive island of Wyspa Piasek and the fourteenth-century church of St Mary of the Sands, with its majestically vaulted ceiling. Two elegant little bridges connect the island with Ostrów Tumski, the city’s ecclesiastical heart, home to several Baroque palaces and the vast Cathedral of St John the Baptist.
