The Archcathedral of Christ the King in Katowice


The Cathedral of Christ the King in Katowice was being built over nearly 30 years. The construction work started in 1927, and the ceremony of its consecration took place in 1955. The building was built in the Classicist style, with a monumental colonnade in front of the main entrance and a distinctive central dome. This dome is 64 meters tall and is lower than the one originally designed by 38 m. The church is the largest arch cathedral in Poland.
