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.

Trencín Castle

Trenčín Castle is relatively large renovated castle, towering on a steep limestone cliff directly above the city of Trenčín. It is a dominant feature not only of Trenčín, but also of the entire Považie region. The castle is a national monument.

History of the castle cliff dates back to the Roman Empire, what is proved by the inscription on the castle cliff proclaiming the victory of Roman legion against Germans in the year 179.

Today’s castle was probably built on the hill-fort. The first proven building on the hill was the Great Moravian rotunda from the 9th century and later there was a stone residential tower, which served to protect the Kingdom of Hungary and the western border. In the late 13th century the castle became a property of Palatine Matúš Csák, who became Mr. of Váh and Tatras.

Matúš Csák of Trenčín built a tower, still known as Matthew’s, which is a dominant determinant of the whole building.
