Trip Planner: Europe / Poland / Northern Poland / Warmia-Masuria Province / Frombork / Archcathedral Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Andrew
The Archcathedral Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Saint Andrew in Frombork, Poland, is a Roman Catholic church located at the Cathedral Hill, by the Cathedral St. It was originally constructed from 1329 to 1388.The basilica is one of Poland's official national Historic Monuments, as designated September 16, 1994 and tracked by the National Heritage Board of Poland.HistoryThe astronomer and mathematician Nicolaus Copernicus worked here as a canon (1512–16 and 1522–43). He wrote his epochal work, De revolutionibus orbium cœlestium in Frombork. Shortly after its 1543 publication, Copernicus died there and was buried in the cathedral where his grave was thought to have been found by archaeologists in 2005. This was subsequently confirmed in November 2008 by the publication of the results of DNA tests on fragments of bone and hair found on the skeleton; hair that matched two strands of hair which belonged to Copernicus and are currently located in Uppsala University.In the northwest corner of the cathedral grounds is Copernicus' tower, and in the southwest corner an octagonal building with a square bell tower and a small planetarium and a Foucault's pendulum.Plan my day in Frombork using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
