The building was started in 1260 and is packed with a plethora of masterpieces. The painted ceilings are beautiful. There chapel with a baptismal font at which Nicolaus Copernicus was baptised in 1473.

I love old buildings made of red bricks. It looks like from medieval times. Beautiful unique interior and a tower you can climb - so much fun!

If you are fit enough, pay 7zl and climb 200+ steps up to the belltower (and then back) and be rewarded with a view over the river and the city wall gates. You'll be sore after though. The bell zone needs more maintenance, its a...More
