Archikatedra pw. Sw. Jana Chrzciciela we Wroclawiu, Wroclaw

4.7
Archikatedra pw. Sw. Jana Chrzciciela we Wroclawiu stands tall, showcasing its twin spires, its elaborate medieval portal, and the 16th-century altarpiece of the sleeping Virgin Mary. The current Gothic church was built on the site of three former buildings, with work beginning on the existing cathedral in 1244. Notice the numerous motifs and gargoyles on the exterior, which tell many legends. On the southern wall, look for the petrified head of the jeweler's apprentice, who was punished for setting fire to his master's house in an act of revenge. The interior features stained-glass windows depicting the patron saints, tombstones and epitaphs from the 14th to the 17th centuries, and the largest pipe organ in Poland. Climb the 91 m (299 ft) tower for views of the city. Take a look at our Wroclaw trip itinerary builder website to schedule your visit to Archikatedra pw. Sw.

  • It's beautiful. Cozy. And with a stunning observation deck! Beautiful as well as inside and around, walk and look in the open doors

  • It's a beautiful building, especially when you're looking at it outside. Imposing and towering. Inside you are allowed to enter and photograph. Worth a stroll to the spot where it is because the whole area near it is beautiful and scenic.
