A neo-gothic brick church built at the very end of the 19th and the very start of the 20th century, notable for a high single big tower and use of a clinker brick at some places.

Since the 90's it's illuminated in a nice way, and it's the nicest at night actually.

There is a mosaic of St Peter and Paul over the main entrance, and some stained glass there and elsewhere.

There are many statues etc inside, including in the main altar, side altars, the pulpit etc. Some of the pulpit and of the baptismal font were stolen in the 90's.

The altar etc used to be greyish-golden, but were changed to brown-golden during renovation.

Since the 90's the church was made a cathedral.

There used to be more modern images of the stations of the cross around the church, but most of them were covered and replaced with more traditional wooden sculptures, apart from some behind the altar.

There is also a more modern chapel of the adoration of the holy heart on the left.

The benches and the confessionals are made of wood.

It is a Roman-catholic cathedral, but in the 90's it was visited by an Armenian-Catholic patriarch and some bishops and archbishops, who celebrated a mass there.

There are organ concertos sometimes.

While some people did visit the tower, it is not possible in general.

A beautiful building not far from the down town of Gliwice. Made out of bricks, this cathedral is a good example of neo-gothic style.

Looking at renewed sculptures dont forget to see and better hear renewed organs. The best time to visit during Gliwice spring time organ concerts (May - June - one week). Concerts organized since more than 20 years.

Cathedral church of St’s. Peter and Paul. Its construction was completed in 1899
It was built with the characteristic typical of the late 19th and early 20th century neo-Gothic style, with the shape of a cross. The intersection of the main nave and transept is crowned by a fleche. The main entrance leads through almost 250 feet tall tower in the middle of which there is a clock. Inside, there are three huge bells from 1922. Above the side naves and the gallery surrounding the sanctuary are spread support arches characteristic of Gothic and arched windows. The facade of the main nave is interestingly decorated with a design made of green clinker it catches the attention also the use of dormers in the roof. Above the main entrance there is a mosaic with the image of the St’s. Apostles Peter and Paul.
Cathedral has beautiful stained glass windows. It’s one of the tallest churches in the city. I recommend to visit this church.
