2006-09-05 Bazylika Mariacka (St Marys Basilica) and Ruins
The Bazylika Mariacka (full name: Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, or in Polish: Bazylika Mariacka Wniebowzięcia Najświętszej Maryi Panny w Gdańsku), the co-cathedral of Gdańska. This the largest church in Poland, the biggest brick church in the world and largest Brick Gothic building in Europe. It was heavily damaged in world war 2 and was not reconsecrated until 1955.
I know nothing about the ruins in the foreground. Wish I'd enquired now.
(Sorry for any spelling errors or mistranslations, my Polish is very scant and this was four years ago. I would appreciate any corrections.)
