  • 1 St. Jacob's and St. Agnes' Church and the bell tower (Bazylika św. Jakuba i św. Agnieszki). This decanal church is the largest religious building in the city and a valuable monument. Because of the size of the building, historical conditions and the bishops buried inside, and because it used to house a theological seminary, it is commonly referred to by the inhabitants as "the Cathedral". It was awarded the title of "basilica" in 2009. On February 28, 2011, the building was declared a Historical Monument, which makes it one of Poland's most valuable monuments.
