Cathedral of St. Mary Magdalene in Wroclaw

The Cathedral of St. Mary Magdalene (Katedra sw. Marii Magdaleny) is a Gothic church located near the central market square of the city. It was built in the 13th century, although the first church in its present place appeared already at the end of the 11th century.
