Magnificent View Of Chicago’s Polish Cathedrals

Famed for its Polish heritage and population, Chicago is unsurprisingly a hub for Polish cathedrals, a type of North American Catholic Church architecture. Churches in this style are known for their monumental grandness and large amounts of ornamentation, comparable to that of churches from the Renaissance and Baroque periods. In the late 19th and early 20th century, Chicago’s growing Polish community necessitated the building of a number of new churches, creating an impressive architectural legacy in the process.
