Eine gotische Kirche. Die erste Kirche ist der Uberlieferung nach zu Lebzeiten von Boleslaus dem Tapferen erbaut worden. Im Jahr 1024 erhielt die Kirche die Reliquien des Heiligen Kreuzes vom Heiligen Emmerich, dem ungarischen Prinzen. 1232 wurde die Kirche in den Rang einer Stiftskirche erhoben. Von 1945 bis 1972 war sie eine Prokathedrale, seitdem gilt sie als Dom. Der letze Umbau hat in den Jahren 1897 -1902 stattgefunden. Im Innenraum befinden sich u.a. ein gotisches Taufbecken mit dem Wappen der Oppelner Piasten und dem Oppelner Stadtwappen und ein berühmtes Bild der Oppelner Gottesmutter, der Patronin der Diözese und der Stadt Opole.

According to the records, the first church on this site was constructed during the reign of the



King Boleslaw Chrobry. In 1024, the church was endowed with the relics of the Holy Cross by St. Emerick - son of the Hungarian king. In 1232, it became a collegiate church, in 1945 a procathedral and in 1972 a cathedral. The most recent reconstruction took place between 1897 - 1902. Of particular interest inside are a gothic font with the coat of arms of the Opole Piast Dynasty and the coat of arms of Opole, a miraculous picture of the Holy Mother of Opole - a patron of the diocese and of Opole.
