The Mother of Christ churchIt is the oldest Virgin Mary sanctuary in Upper Silesia. There is a wonderful 15th century icon of Mother of Christ of Racibórz, modeled on the painting from Jasna Góra (Częstochowa) – it’s the oldest known copy, decorated with crowns, consecrated by John Paul II, placed in the Neobaroque altar (the altar was created in 1870). In front of the church there is a monument of John Paul II. The original wooden church is said to have been erected in 1432 (confirmed in writing in 1445). The current church was built between 1723 and 1736.
