Built some time in the 1500's, Kolobrzeg cathedral is a gothic basilica, built as a catholic temple, later turned into a lutheran one, and since 1970's - again to catholic. For centuries the church was repeatedly damaged in multiple wars that had been sweeping through Kolobrzeg. In 1945 the double tower crown of the cathedral has been destroyed by Soviet shellfire, and in 1958 rebuilt in the shape visible today. Not much of the historical decor was preserved, and neither of artefacts. However, the still available ons include a 4 m tall seven-branched gothic candelabra, two chandeliers, a bronze 15 c. one and a wooden 16th c. one, a 14 c. baptismal bowl, and three altars: "The Last Supper", "Adoration of The Magi" and "St. Anne and St. Nicolaus". The real treat is a lift ride or a climb up (!) a steep, helix-like staircase of over 100 steps right to the tower top. The panoramic view of the whole city is simply breathtaking.
