Sarcophagus of Bolko II the Small

The prince is depicted in full plate knightly armour, holding a shield and a misericorde in his hand. At his feet, a lion-symbol of courage, a dog-symbol of loyalty and the coat of arms of Lower Lusatia, of which Bolko II was the margrave for life. The sarcophagus tomb shows figures connected with the ducal court: Petr Zedlitzch, Nikolai Bolcze and Reinczke Schaff(gotsch). The other visible coats of arms belong to Silesian families: the Bolcz family; the Schaffgotsch family and the Reibnitz family.

The mausoleum of the Świdnica branch of the Piast dynasty (1735-1747) adjoins the church building (Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary), and includes the tombs of Bolko I and Bolko II (14th century), created by joining two chapels.
