I attended one of the evening masses and it was interesting to see how they perform it. The church is Catholic but at the same time has icons and paintings on the walls which are typical for Orthodox churches.

This is a fantastic ornate Baroque church! be sure to explore the entire building. Check out the high altar, each of the side chapels and the ceiling. It's overwhelming!

Not what I was expecting and very in your face for a Polish Church. However, it is located slap bang in the middle of the old town and worth taking 20 mins to visit.

...but for me very beautiful (if a little over the top) Nice and central, easy access, well worth a visit amongst the many churches in Lublin

To spend admiring the painted walls and ceilings, very ornately finished. Not sure about details as there didn't appear to be any information or descriptions.

The Metropolitan Cathedral, located just outside one of the Lublin city gates, is a beautiful house of worship. Persons interested in art, religion, architecture, and history would enjoy visiting it.

There is treasury to see, tombs in the cellar and the church itself. The church is decorated nicely, but I was dissapointed cause e.g. there are paintings not the sculptures.

Majestic architecture placed just outside the city walls. Great urban design. Perfect beginning for the trip to the Old Town. Visit the nearby tower as well
