The reliquary of St. Wojciech is placed in the centre of the chancel of the cathedral. I was very impressed by the silver casket with its saint dressed in a bishop’s gown on top. Piotr van der Rennen of Gdansk made this reliquary in 1662. The figures around the casket were made by the famous Poznan sculptor Wladyslaw Marcinkowski.
In 1986 the reliquary was stolen and damaged. It was consequently restored and placed into the cathedral again.
