Impressive building in Grodzka. Walking there you'll never miss it. The church has interesting interior, and of course these outside sculptures))

What a treat to get a VIP seat next to the organ artist. The church itself is so beautiful. The organ is massive and sounds as beautiful as it looks.

Ongoing exterior renovations and a dark interior put many visitors off, but those who enter are treated to a calm and peaceful place for observation and meditation. While seated on the banks, it's nice to see others enter quickly, slow,... More

This is a church and Monastery of the Sister of St Clara. Very tiny but very elaborate gilded interior with a big gate. Read the posted information just to the right before entering.
