  • A very typical baroque church structure. It has a wide main nave, and two narrow side naves. It is located in the centre of Lublin, at one end of the old city, popularly known as Lublin Cathedral. The ceiling of the cathedral posseses nice paintings. The pillars are also painted which matches the ceiling painting. The vaulted roof believes to echo whispers from one end to the other.
