Precious macramè needle jewels that reproduce the rose window: an element set on the facade of the churches, that is the highest expression of the creativity and intelligence of artists.
Under the architectural point of view a rose window is a hole, even if it is filled with wonderful stone lace, which creates a special relationship between the exterior and the interior of the church.
It was begun in Neo-Gothic style in 1901 (the foundation stone was laid in 1899) by Tomasz Bohdanowicz-Dworzecki. The church, in red bricks, has many common elements with Milan Cathedral and Westminster Abbey and was built in a short time (just 10 years) but had a troubled history. It was closed to worship in 1938, seriously damaged during the war it risked demolition, then it was transformed into a storehouse and later a hostel. In 1996 it became a church again, then in 2002 it became a cathedral and was restored and reconsecrated in 2005. The large star-shaped rose window features eight large quatrefoil flowers that form an outer corolla.
