St. Mary Magdalene Church in Wroclaw and the Witches' Bridge
Updated: Oct 2, 2022
This gothic church from the 13th century is located near Rynek square. The church was hardly damaged during WWII and rebuilt from 1947 to 1953. There is a bridge connecting the two towers of the church. It called the Witches' Bridge or the Penitent Bridge. The legend tells about a girl from Wroclaw who didn't want to marry. So she was kidnapped and placed on the bridge. And had to sweep it until the end of time as a punishment. Visitors can climb to the bridge. It costs a few zlotys and demands strenuous climbing.
