This would be a perfect place to visit on a very hot day, since the vast interior of this cathedral is white and cool, peaceful and refreshing. It's not the most ornate cathedral I have ever seen but the layout is very pleasing and the...More

It is basically a square building with a dome. Clean concrete gray walls and columns, not a pleasant ambiance inside. Some believers praying in front of idols and relics. Cool in summer at least. Not inviting, for example the entrance doors are not level but...More

It's worth to see this huge building of the cathedral. Outside looks much different than many churches in Poland. Inside there is many interesting things, like altars, paintings statues and throne of Pope John Paul II. I recommend this attraction. RomanP

It's just an impressive size example of how to design ugliness with no sense of style or at least innovation. Inside is as disappointing as the outside. The dome looks nice though. If you have spare five minutes, go and see how bad it can...More

Impressive size but not as ornate as I would have expected a cathedral to be. Also in a more run down area
