Stained glass windows (vitrage) in St. Mary’s Church (Kościół Mariacki) in Katowice


Mariacki Kosciol is the church impossible to miss in Katowice. Because it is situated on Mariacka street – street of pubs, restaurants and pub. Each city has such street, where young and not-young people hang out, make noise and just arrange appointments.

Mariacki church in Katowice despite rich history and so one is nothing special – like all other churches in Silesia. But. Take a look at these stained glass windows!

Vitrages have pictures of domestic animals:

   

Reptile:

Birds:

    

Insects:

    

Flowers:

   

   

   

I was in this church several times and only after some visit mentioned these fauna and flora vitrages. Angels, saint people and Bible stories are everywhere – but nature – only in Katowice.
