Collegiate Church

Dobre Miasto, Poland

The Gothic collegiate complex built from 1357–1389, with a splendid church, on which Pope John Paul II conferred the title of minor basilica (1989). Undoubtedly, one of the biggest tourist attractions beside the magnificent interior and furnishings of the church is the organ with 49 tones and 3522 pipes. The former capitulary library houses a parish museum, which is open to visitors. It contains the remains of the old outfit of the collegiate. Unfortunately, the rich vault as well as the collection of books and manuscripts largely scattered after World War II.

A very nice place. The basilica and its surroundings are very green - lots of trees and bushes. Peace and quiet - you can calm down.

An impressive testimony to the presence of the Teutonic state. "They had the momentum."

The biggest monument in Dobre Miasto. City walls are obligatory + walk in the park along the Łyna

Impressive church. Sad that it was closed.

A majestic temple in the brick Gothic style characteristic for this region. The furnishings are breathtaking - altars, statues, a pulpit, a baptismal fence, stalls, paintings - masterpieces of Gothic, Late Gothic and Baroque created over the course of several centuries. In the courtyard of the adjoining buildings, there is a well-kept patio surrounded by stylish cloisters.

Historic City of Trogir

The historic city of Trogir is situated on a small island between the Croatian mainland and the island of Čiovo. Since 1997, it has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites for its Venetian architecture.

Trogir has 2300 years of continuous urban tradition. Its culture was created under the influence of the ancient Greeks, and then the Romans, and Venetians. Trogir has a high concentration of palaces, churches, and towers, as well as a fortress on a small island. The orthogonal street plan of this island settlement dates back to the Hellenistic period and it was embellished by successive rulers with many fine public and domestic buildings and fortifications. Its beautiful Romanesque churches are complemented by the outstanding Renaissance and Baroque buildings from the Venetian period.

Trogir is the best-preserved Romanesque-Gothic complex not only in the Adriatic, but in all of Central Europe. Trogir's medieval core, surrounded by walls, comprises a preserved castle and tower and a series of dwellings and palaces from the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods. Trogir's grandest building is the church of St. Lawrence, whose main west portal is a masterpiece by Radovan, and the most significant work of the Romanesque-Gothic style in Croatia.
