Neo-Gothic Trinity Tower in Lublin

by Arūnas
Wieża Trynitarska
The Trinity Tower is the three-tiered belfry of the Cathedral of Lublin, housing the Archdiocesan Museum of Church Art, and, from the viewing platform, it allows visitors to enjoy a beautiful 360-degree view over the city.

The tower (Wieża Trynitarska) was built in the 17th century in the Baroque style. In the years 1819–27, it was reconstructed in the Neo-Gothic style according to the design of the Italian architect Antonio Corazzi. During the Second World War, it has been severely damaged; rebuilt between 1945 and 1952.

With a height of 60 meters (196 ft), the Trinity Tower is the tallest historic building in Lublin, the ninth-largest city in Poland. It has 207 steps inside that lead to the 40 meters (131 ft) high viewing platform.

The collection of the Archdiocese Museum in the Trinity Tower includes religious objects: paintings, icons, sculptures, textiles, sarcophagi, musical instruments, candlesticks, and other antique equipment.

Lublin is a very beautiful historical city, so I had a wish to look at it from above, that is, from the Trinity Tower. Unfortunately, standing on its observation deck, I felt insecure, because I am afraid of heights and there was a strong wind, and the railing was quite low. I spent only a minute there as the situation seemed too extreme to me (those who are afraid of heights perfectly understand me) so, I took a couple of photos and immediately went down the internal stairs of the tower. If you are not afraid of heights, I truly recommend you to see Lublin from the tallest historic building in the city.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
