Pelplin - Cistercian cathedral and Gutenberg bible
The pride of place in the town is held by the monumental Gothic cathedral, one of the most sumptuous Cistercian basilicas in Poland. Its interiors are decorated in Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles. Its Late-Renaissance high altar is Poland's largest and is believed to be the largest timber altar in Central Europe. The monastic buildings contain Gothic frescoes from the 15th century. The Diocesan Museum houses an opulent collection of sacred art, including an original Gutenberg Bible printed in 1453 and two Gothic style figures of Our Lady.
