Most Tumski, and the Love Locks Aug 07, 2014
Most Tumski, the „cathedral bridge“, connects Ostrów Tumski with Sand Island. This is the usual access when coming from the city centre, and the most beatiful. The bridge is a steel construction from the late 19th century. Its turquoise-green colour adds a splash of colour to the river panorama.

The tacky but seemingly inevitable custom of attaching love locks to a bridge has reached Wrocław, too. Most Tumski is the most popular spot for this. The rails are literally covered in padlocks. I wonder how many of these „forever“ lovers are actually still together...

However, if you must... Some guys have set up a stall right by the bridge where they sell locks. So there is no need to run around shops trying to find a suitable padlock, you can buy it on the spot. The price is 10 to 15 PLN depending on the size. They also have Edding pens ready to write your names on the lock.

I am not in favour of this silly vandalism. Scratches in the coat of paint and rusty patches are impossible to overlook. A closer look gives an idea of the damage that the padlocks do to the iron rails.
