Gniezno – St Lawrence’s Church

History

The bricked church of St. Lawrence was built in the first half of the 16th century after the previous wooden church was burnt. It underwent very serious reconstructions in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Then, the side aisles, the south tower, the porch and the music choir was enlarged. It obliterated the original architectural shape of the temple.

Current state

The late-gothic character was preserved only by the western façade of the church, topped with a later, plastered gable and the tower adjoining it from the north.
