St Peter and Paul Church

  • The church is located at Żabi Kruk St.
  • The construction was started in the 15th century.
  • At first, the church was St Mary branch church. Later it was transformed into a parish church.
  • In the 16th century the church was managed by the Protestant administration and it was converted into a Calvinist temple.
  • Worshipers used to come here from Gdynia, Sopot and Żuławy to take part in a holy mass because it was the only Calvinist temple in the area. Worshipers were mostly wealthy citizens.
  • During the Second World War, the church was bombed and burnt.
  • After the war, it was reconstructed.
  • In 1958 it became a Catholic church again.
  • In 2019 there was a fire above the sacristy. About 200m² of the roof area was burnt down. The interior of the church however remained intact.

It is constructed from bricks and set on a rectangular plan. There are some fragments of the walls with gates, adjoining both sides of the front façade of the church. The gates lead to the former church area. In the vicinity of the church there are a few blocks of flats, shops and a parking lot. The front façade of the building features an entrance gate with very high grooving. The side wall of the church features two very high windows. There is the church tower rising behind.
