A little bit out of the way - but great to combine with a visit to the fabulous Art Nouveau buildings on Cieskowskiego Street and a coffee at Sowa (65 Gdanska). Can be quite difficult to find the way in (and out!) but well worth...More

This magnificent church is always on my list to revisit whenever in Bydgoszcz. It is beautiful and impressive and always full of life. This time hosting musical performances and special event allowing the access to the top levels near the copula.

As many told us (mainly because of our scarce experience of Bydgoszcz churches), this is the biggest church in the city. We went there once on an early summer Sunday, and we were gladly surprised by the opulent inside.

This big church is inspired by famous roman Pantheon and it is really visible inside. Worth a visit if you are a fan of interesting architecture or sacral art.

Beautiful massive building in the center of Bydgoszcz. Worth a visit not only for religious people. The area nearby is a great place for a stroll - Sielanka district, dzielnica muzyczna (music district) etc.

This grand church is magnificent inside and out. It impresses with beautiful architecture with classic proportions, powerful yet graceful appearance. It was built between 1925 and 1939 and I believe Nazis had some intentions of destroying this structure. Thankfully the Basilica survived and now is...More

All I can say is that, you must see yourself! The dome is an art work itself! The architecture and the art work inside is something to appreciate!
