Elbląg Próchnik – St Anthony’s Church

History

   Church St. Anthony comes from around 1360. The brick tower was added in 1905, according to the design of Konrad Steinbrecht, the conservator-restorer of the famous monuments in Malbork. It were also discovered then, the 15th-century wall paintings, which were partly renovated.

Architecture

   The church was built as a brick, aisleless building with a separate, narrower, four-sided chancel. Both the nave and the chancel were clasped with buttresses, between which there were pointed, Gothic windows, narrower and higher, splayed outside in the presbytery, and wider in the nave, profiled with shafts. Originally, the church also had a wooden bell tower on the west side. Medieval furnishings included, among others, a preserved late Gothic altar and a 14th-century stoup.
