This is the main Orthodox church in central Bialystok. It can be crowded at mass times, but that is the best time to go and hear the glorious choir. They also have a guesthouse behind, which is a hidden gem for budget tourists.

Try to visit during morning or afternoon service, extremely interesting to see beautiful Orthodox service and understand the local culture and religion shared by many in this region of Poland. Beautiful interiors and icons.

I visited the place on Friday afternoon. It is a very beautiful orthodox church. I guess one of the oldest in Białystok. The only disappointment is that you are not allowed to take pictures inside of the church as neither cameras nor cell phones are...More
