Archcathedral Basilica of St. Stanislaus Kostka

Łódź, Poland

The cornerstone of Archcathedral Basilica of St. Stanislaus Kostka  was blessed on June 16, 1901, by Bishop of Warsaw Wincenty Teofil Popiel. The building was built out of non-plastered brick, in the Rohbau architectural style, by which the church was built between 1901 and 1912, following the plans of the Wende i Zarske firm.

The construction of the church was co-led by Berliner Emil Zillmann, with small corrections made by architects: Józef Pius Dziekoński, and Sławomir Odrzywolski-Nałęcz from Kraków. The naved basilica is based on the Ulm Minster in Ulm, Germany. The archcathedral in Łódź, is the tallest building in the city, with a height of 104.5 metres, and is one of the highest churches in Poland.

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
