Cistercian cathedral and Gutenberg bible

Pride of the place is the monumental Gothic cathedral, one of the most sumptuous Cistercian basilicas in Poland. It has Gothic, Renaissance and baroque interior decorations. Its late-Renaissance high alter is Poland’s largest and is believed to be the largest timber alter in Central Europe. The monastic buildings contain Gothic frescoes (15th c.).

The Diocesan Museum houses rich collection of sacral art, including a Gutenberg bible printed in 1453 and two Gothic figures of Our Lady.
