The Roman Catholic Corpus Christi Church, located in the old and historic town Nesvizh, is a Jesuit church and "one of the oldest baroque structures outside Italy influencing the later architecture of Belarus, Poland and Lithuania". The inspiration for the Corpus Christi Church was the Basilica Il Gesu in Rome. At the time, it was an architectural breakthrough. (The Church... More

We visited this as part of a travelling Group and so got a local guide to explain the sights of Nevizh where we were staying in the World Heritage Palace. The Church is a gem with a stunning and colourful interior and a subtle undercroft, full of quiet tombs. Loved it.

Steeped in a lot of history, if you are in the area it is well worth a visit, the grounds around the church and surrounding area are very pleasant in the summer months.

There are many other churches I would recommend to go see in Minsk before I would suggest this one. We just stopped by because we were visiting the castle nearby. But there was lots of construction on the outside dampening the experience.

Do not miss this jewel of a Catholic church in Belarus. This used to be the private church of the noble family owning the Nesvizh Palace next door. This church is a real treat: Beautiful baroque paintings with super trompe l'oil effects, and a very interesting crypt filled with coffins in all sizes from the old nobleman@s family

This place is definitely worth a visit on the way to the Nesviz castle. It will not require many time (if you are not going to take part in pray). It is very beautiful aincent church , and has some interesting stories in it's history.

Still under renovating and repairing. Big and intesting, but now you can't access all areas. Maybe some times later I visit it again

It's a stunning cathedral, which might impress some, and seem quite ordinary to others. However, once you go down the stairs, you'll see something that impressed me most! A very rare kind of burial, for which the Radziwills had to get a special permission from the Pope centuries ago. So, in the basement, all the members of the family are... More

In the way to/from Nesvizh castle we found this church (very nearby). From outside there is not anything impressive and it looks that church needs to be repaired. But interior was surprising and rich, it is really worth to take few steps aside to see it. Moreover it is free of charge. Just go, see and be happy. Also it... More
