This was a stop on our 13-member tour through Exciting Poland. As with many of the Catholic churches we visited, it has very beautiful stained glass, statuary, and ornate crypts. We went down and toured the basement, but when our tour guide Justina asked the...More

The church is nothing special so only if you are interested in the arts sacred. On the other hand, please find something else

Lovely seeing the inside of the old church. You can even walk do the top of the tower. It is quite a climb but worth it when you visit. It has an amazing view
