This church doesn’t look any different than a standard gothic town church in Poland, although its location close to the River is very pictoresque. The church is fantastic inside though.

This may not be on Unesco, but it should be. Small, quaint, but marvelously painted with a very unique pallet that is distinctly different from most cathedrals. I think this is a must see.

St. Martin & Nicholas Cathedral is one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Europe. It is by far the most colorful I have seen anywhere. AS it sits in central Poland it has a certain eastern flair that you may recognize from other Russian Orthodox...More

St. Martin and St. Nicholas Cathedral, located adjacent to the town square, is Bydgoszcz's oldest remaining church, with parts of this beautiful church dating back to the middle of the 15th century. This church has a colorful interior. Photographs are permitted.
