Create an itinerary including Archikatedra Oliwska
Full to bursting with valuable artwork, Archikatedra Oliwska serves as the final resting place of many of the region's prominent families. The great organ was designed in the 18th century by a Cistercian monk and features dramatic carved wood against the white vaulting above the congregation's heads. The angels balanced on top of the organ are movable. Other notable artworks adorn the walls and are worth a closer look as well.

  • When we were in our visit of the Park in Oliwa we also went in the beautifull Cathedral. There is a very good accustic of the great Organ. There are concerts with it very often, so don't miss it.
