Huge neogothic building serving the citizens of Bialystok and Podlasie.The interior includes many memorial plates, including comemorating Wilno and AK units that fought there. Nice to see young couples picking Holy Fire to bring home before Christmas.

Just go inside, when the church is almost empty. Look around you and you will see the beauty of its kind. Calmness and creativity are hosts in there.
