|Wrocław is called "Venice of the North" or the "Polish Venice" because of its over hundred bridges and canals. The city fascinated me. It was like a fairyland.|
|The bridge leads to the island called Ostrów Tumski where is the oldest part of Wrocław.||Soon after crossing the bridge, I reached the gigantic Gothic tower. It is the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, the symbol of Wrocław.|
|The top of the tower commands a great 360 degree view of the city of Wrocław. It was early evening when I was up there, so the city and the Odra were glittering from the reflection of the sun.|
|The Katyn memorial.
22,000 Polish citizens were murdered by the Soviet secret police in the Katyn forest in April 1940.
