The Bazylika Mariacka dates to the 14th century but was severely damaged in World War II, during the storming of Danzig City by the Red Army in March 1945. Fortunately, most of the artworks from the interior survived, as they were evacuated for safekeeping to the villages surrounding the city. The reconstruction started shortly after the war in 1946 and is an ongoing effort which continues to this day.
