Wrocław Cathedral

The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist dates mainly from the Gothic period, from the 13th to the 14th century. However, she was preceded by three other churches on this place. The current building mixes Baroque complements and contemporary restorations after war damage. It is considered the first completely Gothic church in Poland.
