The church of St. Wojciech is one of the oldest Gothic churches in Wroclaw, at the beginning of the twelfth century the first Romanesque church was built in this site and since 1226 the church belonged to the Order of the Dominicans.
It was destroyed during the Mongol invasion and in 1250 rebuilt in the Gothic style.
During the World War II the church was heavily damaged and in 1953-1955 rebuilt.
The church is located in the center of the city and is often visited by tourists looking for shade and coolness on hot days.

Bonjour, cher Ryszard,
Il faut du courage pour trouver un tel point haut pour donner à la composition toute la beauté environnante.
Très bon choix de cadrage et de rendu.

It's a great view from Wroclaw with the attractive church and the many red roofs. I like the two diagonal streets framing the view of the area. Most of the buildings seen here are almost as nice looking as the church. The light and colours are beautiful.

A spectacular perspective over the rooftops of Wroclaw. The image is well composed with the focal point supplied by the impressive church ideally placed. The whole is very well exposed with pleasantly saturated colours and excellent clarity.

bel punto di vista alto per mostrarci questa parte di città, la chiesa scura si contrappone alle abitazioni, mentre i tetti rossi danno un bel colpo di colore alla foto.

A beautiful view of the city from an excellent POV. I really like the light, it’s both bright and soft and rendered the colours most beautiful. I really like the contrast of the orange roofs and the blue sky a lot.

Spring is around the corner and what a fresh view of the cityscape and delicious to look from hi viewpoint - the colour of blue, brown and white are joy to behold. This forces the eye to fully focus on the jutting spire, the road below emphasising the feel of depth and whole vicinity. it looks so pleasing on the eye with your excellent exposure. Lovely piece, Congrats

I can't resist scenes like this! I'm drawn to them each and every time. glad to hear it was re-built, but it certainly took a long long time. love the view you have here, we can see all the red/orange rooftops clearly. The blue sky works well too. nice shot. cheers
