KoSciol Garnizonowy Bazylika Mniejsza pw. Sw. Elzbiety, Wroclaw

4.6
St. Elizabeth's Church of the Catholic Third Order of Saint Francis is a Gothic church in Wrocław, Poland. It is one of the most iconic structures of the city's panorama.
The structure dates back to the 14th century, when construction was commissioned by the city. The main tower was originally 130 meters tall. From 1525 until 1946, St. Elizabeth's was the chief Lutheran Church of Breslau/Wroclaw and Silesia. In 1946 it was expropriated and given to the Military Chaplaincy of the Polish Roman Catholic Church. The church was damaged by heavy hail in 1529, and gutted by fire in 1976. The church's renowned organ was destroyed. The reconstructed main tower is now 91.5 meters tall. An observation deck near the top is open to the public. Since 1999 there is a memorial on the church property to Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a native of the city (then Breslau, Germany) and martyr to the anti-Nazi Cause.

  • It’s a beautiful building. If there is no worship in the church you could enter inside and even seat on the bench. On the top there is a view point and really good look into the city. For entrance here you should pay around 8zl.
  • Beautiful church. Quiet and with rather simplistic decor. The beautiful stained glass is a notable characteristic.
