Another solid example of Białystok's sacral buildings. Provides a great background for Kościuszko Market Square. While you will definitely visit more majestic / cute / unusual / whatever churches during your trips, it would be a mistake not to enter.

The gorgeous Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary is surely one of the city's dominant attractions which is worth to visit.

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.

Nice church, very centrally located. It is one of the key points in Bialystok. The inside is also beautiful.
