First of all this cathedral is seen almost from all part of Szczecin and it's difficult to not to come over. An old monumental building which is attractive and amazing from the outside. When u visit its sightseeing platform you will get the chance to observe city and magnificent Odrafrom above. It gives you a wonderful experience especially if u visit it at the end of your trip, during sunset. Let you dive in this romantic vibe of cute Szczecin.

We visited the Cathedral in the Evening for Service but there was a concert instead, so we listen the music. Later we saw the manger and it was very nice arranged. Especially for kids it is nice, because you can walk around the figures. The Cathedral is big and in gothic architecture. You can also climb on the Tower.

Cathedral Basilica was built by the citizens of the city and modeled after the Church of St. Mary in Lübeck. It is the largest church in Pomerania and for many years after the reformation was part of the Pomeranian Evangelical Church.
The church was established in 1187 completed in 14th century.
Was destroyed in 1677 during the Scanian War and rebuilt between 1690 and 1693 in the Baroque style. In 1893, the church was remodeled again however, the west tower collapsed during a storm in 1894 and had to be rebuilt. This remodeling was completed in 1901 leaving the church with a spire of 119 meters (390 feet)
Air raids on the night of 16 August 1944 during World War II resulted in collapse of the spire added in 1901 and extensive damage to other parts of the building.
Rebuilding work begun in 1971 and continued for three years.

this is the best example what poles did in past German cities... to show their communist advantage they have covered this cathedral with their poor infrastructure ... the effect is shocking ... but the worst awaits inside... all walls are painted with pants green color... yuck

Even if this church was build in ancient times it completely disappeared during last world war, so today's look owes to a massive reconstruction works in early seventies, which gave it a bit strange look, as some parts of the walls remember much older times, when north wall is completely new and does not fit the rest. In 2008 the restoration of bell tower has finally got to an end with new spire with viewing platform been installed, mostly thanks to EU funding. This is now the biggest attraction of the cathedral and as it is always the case - you have to pay for it (8 PLN). But it is worth the money, as the view is really amazing, with whole Szczecin and beyond, including entangled channels of river Odra estuary. There's also a good news for all the lazy tourists: you don't have to sweat out to see all of this: a set of two lifts will take you onto the viewing platform in no time! Just remember: when first lift comes to a stop - walk off, turn left, and after some 8 meters walk you will find entrance to the second lift. This little link between the lifts is merely marked, if at all. The church itself is more interesting to all of those, who are really fixated in sacred Art. You got to realize most of what you see comes from other churches from all over Pomerania, as the cathedral itself was nearly destroyed in 1944.

A stunning building, rebuilt post-war after the then German city of Stettin was heavily bombed in 1944. The interior is incredibly lofty and so large that an ordinary camera simply can't catch its immensity. Access is available for a requested charge of 2 Euros or 8 Zloty (Sep 2019), a bargain for the experience. Access to the tower is also available for a supplementary fee. Whether you have religious leanings or not, understand the Polish language or not, listening to a sung Eucharist is an extraordinary experience.

Definitely a must see as you are able to take a lift up into the Spire where there is a glass viewing point overlooking the City.

The Cathedral is free to enter and the trip up the spire costs only a couple of pounds each. Well worth the visit as there is a 360 degree view of the City and you can see the Baltic coast from some 350 feet up.

I just love old cathedrals and architecture in general. This is one of the monuments that you have to see when you visit Szczecin. This place is very close to the castle anyway, so just go and see it. While you there go to "Biala Trufla" restaurant, you won't be disappointed.

If you're in Szczecin you can not miss the cathedral. It is one of the oldest monuments in Szczecin, despite the fact that he was almost completely destroyed has been completely renovated. Worth going to find and feel the spirit of old times. For a small price you can use the elevator to the top and enjoy the view of the yard, the river and the old town. Highly recommended

Quite impressive. Visited while on an all-day stroll through the city. Surrounded by a nice park, too
