Corpus Christi Church

  ul. 3 Maja 19A, Gdańsk ,   No District          (+48) 58 302 52 38     13 Jun 2019
Once part of a settlement called Grodzisko, a complex of fortifications outside of Gdańsk's main city walls, the Bożego Ciała (Corpus Christi) Church is one of the oldest remaining houses of worship in the city. Dating from the early part of the 14th century, the church was originally part of a larger complex that grew around it including a small chapel, old people's home, a leprosy hospital and a cemetery that was closed by the communists in 1956. The church is not a great looker, but is interesting on two levels. It was here that the city's poignant Cemetery of the Lost Cemeteries was built in 2002, and, along with St. Nicholas' Church, it was the only other church to escape any damage at all during WWII.
