Gorzow Wielkopolski Things to Do

    St. Mary's Cathedral was originally built in the late 13th century as a parish church. It is a Gothic construction with some Romanesque elements visible.There were 17 altars inside the church in the Middle Ages. All that remains of the original furnishings is a passion group situated on a beam. When extending the nave in the 15th century, a presbytery was added.
    The tower, which is 52 metres, was added in the 17th century.

    At the main entrance door there are lots and lots of nails to be seen. They were put there by those who escaped military draft during the World War I.

    What is still remaining of the medevial city walls can best be seen near ulica Zabykowa ("ulica" is Polish for street, abrevated ul.). The wall is more than 4 metres high, 130 metres long and we can still see 4 towers. In old time, it surrounded the whole old town.

    On July 2007, the tower of Gorzow's Cathedral from XIV century was opened for visitors. Since Gorzow is one the most green cities in Poland you have got a really nice view from there! In addition, there is a small museum inside. And you can see huge bell on the top. Enjoy it!

    Here you will get the site for the local transports.
    When entering the bus or tram, you must have a ticket already. It is impossible to buy onboard. After entering you just HAVE to validate your ticket in the ticket machine. If not, you might very well have to pay a good fine. There are plenty of controls the whole day round.

    Some explanations to the Polish text
    "rozklad jazdy" means timetable
    "mapa sieci" means route lines (you find it in the second box from top, left column)
    "cennik" means price, fee (third box, under the above one)
    "normalny" on the "cennik" site means, well, normal price
    "ulgowy" means reduced

    Favorite thing: I have put links to Google Map in my tips to make it easier to find the objects mentioned, when possible to get the right position. The links are marked in italics. Unfortunately Google Map isn't very precise and too often points to other buildings than the wanted one.
