Ornate & reflective

A beautiful building, historic and ornately decorated with spectacular stained glass windows. A serene place of reflection.

Not spectacular architecturally but a wonderful art nouveau interior. If you think that you don't like modern stained glass, then open your mind to this - it is magnificent. Just off the Planty, a few minutes from the main square.

We visited this Church as part of a walking tour. It is near the university and window dedicated to Pope John Paul 2.

Gorgeous art nouveau wallpapers, amazing stained glass. I could've spent hours in here. I sat quietly and listened to a service in one of the side chapels. BTW I'm not religious at all, but it's a great place to reflect.

Unfortunately there was building work inside the church but it was worth a visit. Beautiful wall decorations. In a parallel room was a fantastic huge edifice of the Christmas story in Bethlehem. Quite stunningly beautiful. Only a short walk from the market square.
