The massive Gothic affair located just south of the Old Town is the Franciscan Church of SS Stanislaw, Wenceslas and Dorothy, founded in 1351 to commemorate the meeting between Polish King Kazimierz III Wielki (Casimir III the Great) and his Bohemian counterpart, Charles IV, at which they agreed to leave Silesia in Bohemia’s hands.

This Church is dedicated to three saints, the Czech St Wenceslas, the Polish St Stanislaw and the German St Dorothy. The church's unusually narrow interior is Baroque. The Rococo tombstone of Gittfried von Spaetgen stands in the nave.
