Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which by the inhabitants is called the Church of St. Clare – from the name of the Poor Clares convent that for centuries operated in the church facilities. In the interior, there is a Gothic chandelier, two magnificent wrought-iron gratings and a wooden altar from the 17th century as well as a painting of Saint Stanislaw Kostka by Leon Wyczolkowski. Till 1818 the church belonged to the monastery of the order of St. Clare. In 1835 it was converted to a warehouse, and in 1875 – a fire station. In 1878 – 1937 and in 1992 – 1993 the church was thoroughly renovated. Every day (at 9 am, midday, 3 pm and 6 pm) the Bydgoszcz bugle-call, based on motifs from regional Kashubian cheers and composed (in 1946) is played.
