Katowice

Church of St. Michael the Archangel

  ul. Kościuszki 112 ,   Katowice Centre          (+48) 32 209 00 21 ext. 117     19 Oct 2018

Like the other wooden church of note in the area, this one, which also happens to be the oldest ecclesiastic building in Katowice, began life elsewhere, in this case in neighbouring Syrynia way back in 1510. Moved to Katowice in 1938, and solely justifying a trip to Kościuszko Park, access inside is usually denied by a security guard, meaning that the 17th-century pulpit, late Gothic 16th-century sculpture of the Holy Mother and Child from Dębieńsko and 17th-century belfry must be real treasures indeed. It's not easy for tourists to get in, in fact, to gain entrance, you must buy a ticket 'museum lessons' ticket (only in Polish) at the main headquarters of Katowice Historical Museum. Alternatively, you can enter during mass on Sundays at 12:00, as long as you are respectful to the proceedings!

There happened to be a wedding going on at the church when we went by to see it so we were able to sneak in after the wedding and see the inside. Really beautiful and quaint!
