Gniezno Things to Do: 23 reviews and 55 photos

When visiting Gniezno and the Cathedral one should absoloutely not miss the chance to see the 12th century Bronze Doors. They are to be found in the south crypt. The doors consists of two halfs illustrating episodes from the life of St Adalbert. The doors were made circa 1170 - 1180 but the artist is not known.
Due to renovation works when I visited, the crypt was closed. Great disappointment of course.

Directions: In the Cathedtral.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
