City of three cultures

The city of many cultures with many secular and sacral historical buildings. Originally Gothic and now predominantly baroque cathedral hosts a miraculous, alabaster figure of Our Lady from the 15th century.

The Przemysl Fortress is Europe’s third largest stronghold of this kind after those of Antwerp and Verdun, representing the highest achievement of military art from the 19th and 20th centuries. The fortifications were composed of 42 forts arranged in two rings, the outer line was constructed 8-12 kilometers from the city limits. The preserved fragments of the fortress are a great tourist attraction.
