Beautiful architecture

We listened one concert there and acoustics were good. Architecture is beautiful and paintings are memorable.

A very beautiful and unique church, worth of seeing. Unfortunately timetable was too strict to stay for the service.

A group of us were taken to this beautiful Evangelical / Lutheran Church. The frescoes and organ along with the interior is extraordinarily beautiful. The main frescoe is is magnificent. The story of the frescoe was told to us by a lovely young woman, a church member.

Beautiful church, both inside & outside. There happened to be a service when I visited on a Sunday morning, and they even provide headphone audio translation!

It is a very interesting place to visit. Although the church is simple from architectural perspective its fresco is unique. The fresco's story and its representational tools reflect the recent history of the town and the life this part of the world. We received interesting pieces of information from the girl working at church.

I was lucky enough to get to this church minutes before the mass, when the choirs were still rehearsing. Simple church, but worthy a visit

Was nice to catch the locals having their xmas service. Some nice drawings and motifs. Apart from that, nothing too magnificent and not necessary to visit if ur itinerary is tight.

I visited the church during the holiday 6th December, remembering the lives that were lost during WWII, so the graveyard was even more beautiful, with candles lit upon each grave. The statue outside is really nice.
