Cathedral of St John the Baptist - Katedra sw Jana Chrzciela, Wroclaw: 16 reviews and 55 photos
St. John the Baptist Cathedral is one of the most valuable monuments of Wroc³aw?s church architecture. At the end of World War II, the damage to the cathedral was estimated at 70 per cent, and it was uncertain whether the building could be restored to its former glory. The reconstruction proceeded in several stages, initially under the supervision of Marcin Bukowski, then, after 1968, under Edmund Malachowicz. Excavation works were simultaneously conducted, leading to the discovery of the relics of a Romanesque crypt that was part of Walter?s cathedral, as well as the tombs and remains of many bishops.
Today the magnificently rebuilt Gothic cathedral is again open to the public. Since a lift was installed in the north tower in 1995, visitors can also enjoy a view from the terrace of the city and its surroundings.
