The Church of St Nicholas (Polish: kościół św. Mikołaja) was most probably constructed at the turn of the 13th/14th century. Its final architectural shape - as it then seemed, as it survived only until 1912 - had been created in the 15th century and shortly afterwards by adding annexes. A detached belfry was erected next to the church most probably around the same time. The present church was created by extensive reconstruction in 1912-1914. The interior decoration consist of several interesting altars with old paintings, arrestingly beautiful stained glass windows from 1914, grand chandelier from the 1930s and many other interesting historic objects. Until the end of the 18th century the vault under the church served as burial place for eminent burghers of the town.
