“Beautiful Little Church”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

This church was easy to find and walk to. As we went at Christmastime, it was important for my girl and I to find a church and this was such a lovely little place to be. It is pretty both on the outside and on the inside and well worth a visit.

“Awesome fresco”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

We went there as part of a tour and was accompanied by a local guide. Her explanation and narrative on the fresco made the visit even more meaningful. Worth a visit. It was a moving experience for me.

“Northern-most church”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

We walk a long distance from the railway station to get to the church. The church is a simple looking church but provides a very warm feeling

“Deserves a visit”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

The church is about 10-15 mins walk from the city center.

We spent about 15-20 mins here. The church is very beautiful and enchanting.

“Very moving & don't miss the park and war memorials”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

The fresco above the altar is absolutely beautiful and very moving when you consider the history of this church. The original was burnt down by the Nazi's and the replacement is a fitting tribute to the townsfolk who rebuilt their city.
The adjacent graveyard has monuments to the soldiers who lost their lives and once a year the graveyard is lit up with candles on each grave. Opposite the church is a small park with three stone monumnets that tell of the history of the churches in the town and provides a quiet haven near the river and town hospital.
