Neo-Romanesque Lutheran Church of 1858 in Katowice

25th October 2015


Twice a week I work in Katowice - our province capital city and I can admire this charming church


The Evangelical Church of the Resurrection is the oldest stone church in Katowice. It was built in the years 1856-1858 – and it is the oldest building in the city. Later, it was expanded and restored many times. 
It is a neo-Romanesque shrine, also referring to the early Christian architecture. Inside the church it is worth noting the original pulpit, stained glass windows in the chancel and valuable organ








The church is located at Warszawska Street among old trees.


















Have a nice Sunday. I am on the way to my flat in Upper Silesia. It takes us 3 hours..

  10. This is a great looking place. The trees make a great overall scene but, I have found that they make getting good photos a bit difficult.
