Rotunda in Cieszyn - the only Romanesque rotunda in Poland preserved along with the nave vault.
The rotunda was built in the 12th century as a Roman Catholic castle chapel and stronghold church.The rotunda was erected within the walls of the castellan stronghold at the top of Castle Mount. The stronghold was built between the 10th century and the first half of the 11th century.In the 1950s, researchers believed that the rotunda was built during the first half of the 11th century. However, recent research indicates that its construction date might be as late as 1180.
