“Church full of legends and mysteries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

The Dominican Church is famous for its story of 49 Dominican martyrs murdered here during the Tatar invasion in 1260. It is one of the oldest brick churches in Poland, in a unique Romano-Ghotic style, with beautiful stained glass windows and ceramic decorations on the outside. A very old linden tree in front of the church has its legend that says it was one of many linden trees planted around the property upside down so that the miracle comes (the previous landlord did not want to give his property to Church, and he finally agreed to give up if there is a miracle, and apparently it did happen...)
