Cathedral of Christ the King in Katowice

Some 800 meters south of the Marketplace is the Cathedral of Christ the King, Poland’s largest cathedral, measuring 89 meters by 53 meters. The massive sandstone structure was erected between 1927 and 1955. The spacious interior is topped with a large dome rising 59 meters from the floor, but apart from colourful stained-glass windows and an unusual ‘wheel’ crucifix it’s fairly plain.

Cathedral of Christ the King in Katowice is a classicist arch-cathedral in Katowice-Srodmiescie. In the chapel of the Blessed Sacrament are the tabernacle of gold and mosaic founded by Joseph Ratzinger, paper, and Benedict XVI. This is the seat of the bishop of the Archdiocese of Katowice.
