Tourist attractions

When you visit Bydgoszcz, you should remember that many famous people are related to our city, e.g. An excellent playwright and literature critic – Adam Grzymała-Siedlecki, a composer – K. Szymanowski or a great painer – Leon Wyczółkowski.


The monuments are grouped at the Brda River and in the area of Old Town. The building of Privinence Public Library was built in 1778 and originally functioned as a court. Late gothic church is placed at Farna Street (1466-1502). The chapel of Saint Cross was saved from the chapels. In the main chapel three are: the Image of God's Mother with a rose (1466), rococo pulpit from XVIII c. And seven side altars from XVII and XVIIc. Along Przyrzecze Street at the Brda Młyńska you can admire the group of antique buildings. One of the oldest churches in Bydgoszcz is situated at Długa Street. Built in 1522, it was initially gothic, then it was rearranged many times. The fragment of city fortification, with tower from Xvc., is placed between Pod Blankami Street and Wały Jagiellońskie Street.


At the Brda River there are three antique granaries, the oldest canes from XVIIc. The church of Clarists is located at the corner of Gdańska and Jagiellońska Streets. It was evected in 1582-1602 as late gothic, later extended in renaissance style. In the central altar – the coronation of God's Mother and the Birth of Jesus from XVIIc. A beautiful, hammered grid separates the presbitery from..... nave (1651). Near the church there is a museum, which has the biggest in our country collection of L. Wyczółkowski's works.


It is barely the part of buildings, that are worth seeing. Perhaps you become interested in fact, that every year many music events take place in Bydgoszcz, e.g. The Festival of Polish Music, and from 1966 an international festival of music of the countries that were the part of central and Gastern Europe („Musica Antiqua Europae Orientalis”). These festivals are held in the Philharmonic Hall at Szwalbego Street. One of the few groups of old music „Capella Bydgostiensis” exists at this Philharmonic. There you can also find the collection of the antique instruments, the gallery of sculpture and the portraits of composers.
