Photographer's Note

Church of St. Martin in Wroclaw is a small Gothic church (about 22m long) located in the western part of Cathedral Island. It is the oldest church building in Wroclaw. The first mention of a church on this site comes from 1149. The present Rectory Church of St. Martin was originally the castle chapel of Henry IV the Righteous. It was built around 1280, and was reconstructed around 1330, and in the early 16th century. It is a brick, two-storey, Gothic church built on an octagonal plan. Many buttresses were built around the church; they were probably to support the third-storey, which was never completed.
