The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist is a Roman Catholic church, located in Lublin, Poland.

It was built between 1592 and 1617, in the style of the Baroque by the Italian architects Giovanni Maria Bernardoni (1541–1605) and Giuseppe Brizio (1533–1604). In 1823, the church elevated to a cathedral. The building was heavily damaged by Allied bombing in World War II and rebuilt in 1952.

  2. I fell in love with Poland during my first trip there. I loved visiting all of the older churches and checking out their organs. I honestly thought I would get organ-fatigue, but I totally didn't! This organ in St. John sounds huge and I would love to hear it in person someday!

  4. Your videos are incredible! Cathedrals are something I have never really gotten to experience, simply because there are not too many magnificent ones in the United States. This one in Poland is simply stunning! I can only imagine how beautiful the organ sounds in person!
