Project Description

The Holy Saviour Church

Was constructed in the years 1885-1888 on a sandy dune outside of Ustka village, which was a reason for protests of its citizens. The contractor responsible for the construction was a local carpenter Franz Dreheim. One of the streets in Ustka was named after him (presently – Kopernika Street). A lot of elements were moved to a new church from the old one, situated by the harbour in the „Captain’s Corner”. The pipe organs in the church are one of the few made by the famous european manufacturer – the Voelkners and survived till now. If you are lucky, you can also listen to a local church choir, which was frequently appreciated and won multiple awards at sacral music festivals.
