This beautiful church right now enables you to see the painstaking work that goes into restoration. The churches were left in dilapidated conditions or had their purpose completely changed by the Nazis or Soviets and now years are spent recreating the finest details from highest...More

Simply gorgeous in sumptuous baroque style. It is very inspiring. The Mass was beautiful even though I didn't understand a word except for th bit of Latin

This is an important church, though from the outside the rather plain, red brick construction wouldn't necessarily alert you to that fact. Inside the largely baroque decorations and statuary are lovely (including several unusual icons), including interesting ceiling decorations.

Whilst this church stands grand it may not be impress you until you go inside to marvel and the beautiful carvings and spectacular roof. Located in the heart of old town. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Absolutely lovely cathedral with an interesting history. First mentioned in 1413, renovated several times since, including as recently as the 1800s. The outside looks plain, but the inside is spectacular. This cathedral is still in use which makes it very special.

Beautiful cathedral. Bright colours, interesting paintings, and a strong spiritual air upon entering. Recommend viewing if you're close to the area.

Don’t be fooled by the outside - it looks a little plain based mainly in brick. However, inside it is a beautiful church. There is lots to look at and see so worth using a guide to get the most out of it. Could spend...More
