Location: city centre


Address: ul. Golebia


Opening hours: 1 - 1

Description:
The Church of St. Stanislaus the Bishop, often referred to as the Parish Church, is renowned as one of the most exquisite examples of Baroque in Polish architecture. It is also one of the largest churches in Poland. It is not only the size of the building (55 metres in length by 34 metres in width) that distinguishes this three-nave church from other sacred edifices of Poznan. The interior of the church is really awesome as well. The rich adornments of the interior include massive artificial marble columns with the apostle statues, stucco works, the 17th-century polychromy featuring the scenes from the life of St. Stanislaus on the vaulting of the main nave, the pseudo-dome with an illusionist painting on the nave crossing. The high altar, with a painting featuring St. Stanislaus the Bishop bringing back Piotrowin to life (1756) with huge statues of St. Stanislaus the Bishop and St. Stanislaus Kostka at its sides, is also of high artistic merits. The two large altars closing the transverse nave, modelled on the Church of San Ignazio in Rome, are equally imposing. These are only a few of the decorative elements of the church's rich interior. The Church also boasts a large historical organ dating from 1876.
