St Elisabeth Church - Kosciol Sw Elzbiety, Wroclaw: 28 reviews and 85 photos
Saint Martin's church lies near the Holy Cross church. It was erected in the 13th and 14th centuries; originally, it was the chapel of the Piasts' castle, that doesn't exist any longer.
My guidebook says this church was built in Gothic style, which is not correct in my opinion: I would rather call it "late Romanesque" or "early Gothic", since the only Gothic feature I see outside is the arch of the entrance, halfway between a round and an ogival arch. However, there may be more Gothic elements inside (the church was closed when we went there).
The plate you see in the third photo is a declaration. It says:
"- WE ARE POLISH WOMEN
- OUR ANCESTORS' FAITH IS OUR CHILDREN'S FAITH
- THE POLE IS BROTHER TO THE POLE
- THE POLE SERVES ITS NATION EVERY DAY
- POLAND IS OUR MOTHER(LAND), IT IS NOT PERMITTED TO SPEAK BADLY OF THE MOTHER
The truths of Poles - As a sign of patriotic remembrance
The company of the lovers of Wrocław - May 1995".
