Interesting temple of located close to the Nowego Rynku, the beautifully restored. It is worth a look because of its gothic character Interesująca światynia położona nieopodal nowego rynku, pięknie odrestaurowana. Warto zerknąć, ze względu na jej gotycki charakter

At the gate it says: Mon-Sat 10AM until 2PM and Sunday from 2PM. On Sunday June 14th we were asked to leave the church 10 minutes before 2PM. So we come on Monday at 10:30 AM and the church is locked. Whoever is in charge...More
