Reformist Monastery

  ul. Bydgoska 4a ,   Śródka         31 Jan 2019

The Reformists, a chapter of the Franciscan Order, arrived towards the end of the 17th century and erected a church and monastery in the northeastern part of Śródka. The friars only had a little over a century to do their work however as a wave of order closures in the early 19th century sent them packing. Their buildings were subsequently put to good use, first as a military hospital for Napoleon’s soldiers, then Poland’s first teacher’s training college, and finally - thanks to a decision by the German King Frederick William III - as the Royal Home for the Deaf and Mute. Today the monastery retains that capacity and is not open to the public.
