Accommodation in Lubawa

Lubawa is currently a small, 10,000-strong city. In the past, however, the town was an important point on the map of Chełmno land - its Chełmno bishops had their castle here, and Lubawa belonged to them. The monuments of sacred art, unique on a Polish scale, resemble ancient splendor managed by clergy. In a small urban space, in close proximity, we will see three unusual churches - the so-called Fara, Jan and Barbarka.

Parish church St. Anna was built in the first half XIV century. Inside, the Renaissance chapel of the Mortęski family, founded by Magdalena Mortęska. Coming from Mortęg near Lubawa, living at the turn of the 16th and 17th centuries, Magdalena Mortęska became famous as a reformer of the Benedictine order, leading the gathering out of the crisis. Pending the beatification, Magdalena is regarded today as one of the most famous women from the Mortęski family. At present in the church of Anna is the sanctuary of Our Lady of Lipsk. It is here that the fifteenth-century figurine of Madonna with the Child - the Virgin Mary of Leipzig - is kept. She was transferred to Lubawa from nearby Lip, where a Marian apparition took place. Lipy is one of the most important indulgence places in the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship.

Church St. Jana was built at the beginning of XVI century for the needs of the Berdnardine Order. The most enchanting element of the interior of this late Renaissance temple is the unique coffered, figural-ornamental ceiling of the nave from 1612 and the carved and polychrome ceiling of the presbytery. After the Bernardine convent, the remains of a monastery foundation were preserved in Lubawa.

Church of St. Barbara, in turn, is unique in wooden sacred architecture, one of the few wooden churches preserved to this day of the Baroque period. The temple attracts attention with beautiful interior furnishings.

The centuries-old history of Lubawa is also evidenced by the recently exposed ruins of the Gothic castle of the Chełmno bishops and the remains of the medieval defensive walls. It is also worth strolling along the market square in Lubawa and outgoing streets, at which we will see many old, pre-war buildings.
