Archikatedra Oliwska, Gdansk

4.7
Full to bursting with valuable artwork, Archikatedra Oliwska serves as the final resting place of many of the region's prominent families. The great organ was designed in the 18th century by a Cistercian monk and features dramatic carved wood against the white vaulting above the congregation's heads. The angels balanced on top of the organ are movable. Other notable artworks adorn the walls and are worth a closer look as well.

  • The Olivsky cathedral looks pretty strict and ascetic. Built in Gothic style with baroque elements. Inside is spacious and bright. The organ of the cathedral is famous throughout Poland. It is capable to reproduce human voices and voices of birds and animals. Being in Pomorie it is necessary to visit the Olivsky Cathedral.
