Cathedral of Christ the King

The Cathedral of Christ the King, built between 1927 and 1955, is the largest cathedral in Poland. Pope John Paul II visited the cathedral once in 1983. The cathedral is easy to locate - its dome stands out in the Katowice skyline.

Do & See

Katowice continues to steadily add museums and attractions to a growing list of eclectic sites that make the city absolutely unique. There may not be any palaces or castles around, since industrial tourism is what most attracts visitors to the booming heart of Poland’s Industrial Revolution. Churches, growing business centres, and old townhouses are all a pleasure to look at, while an evening in the opera or theatre will complete your day perfectly.
