The cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Wroclaw is the seat of Roman Catholic Archidiocese of Wroclaw and a landmark of the city. It is located on the Ostrow Tumski.
The current building is the fourth one which has been built on the site. It is Gothic church with Neo-Gothic additions. Inside there is the largest pipe organ in Poland built in 1913, formerly the biggest in the world.
This photo has been taken very early in the morning to avoid crowds of tourists.

Thanks for presenting such a stunning building, the red and pink tones of the architecture are really nice. Great idea to go early in the morning too, the light is perfect, and having no crowds shows the building off perfectly. Thanks for sharing!
All the best

Quel dommage que le haut des clochers soient couper, peut être pas assez de recul!!! sinon cette église a l'architecture très intéressante comme les couleurs ,le jeu ombre et de lumière, le cadrage parfait, une bien joli présentation a défaut de ....
Bonne année 2013

This is magnificent architecture and captured so impressively. The colours, textures and dominance of this amazing structures stand out so superbly here. A wonderful shot, but my only negative comments would be that, this needs a but more room at top of frame and the sky color require white-balanced. Congrats to your keen eyes, TFS.

Hi Kamila !!
I love the roof line of buildings like this one and of course the copper lining gives them that special quality.....
early mornings are best....... there is always so much to see.
We had a 3 weeks road trip visiting our neighbour state of Victoria, we came back after driving 3453 Km.

Three domes and a number of impressive towers, but too difficult to take a whole view picture, because of its mighty size.
Yet managed beautifully with the pink and brown shaded colors, and fine clarity on.
Have a nice weekend,
