Corpus Christi Church in Nesvizh, Nesvizh
(4.4/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
See one of the oldest Baroque structures outside Italy at Corpus Christi Church in Nesvizh. The church is an early Jesuit temple which influenced the later architecture of Belarus, Poland, and Lithuania. Take note of the Italian-style frescoes on the interior walls and the large painting of the Last Supper in the apse behind the main altar. A crypt under the church houses the remains of nearly 80 members of the powerful Radziwiłł family, who were politicians and art patrons. Mikołaj Krzysztof "the Orphan" Radziwiłł commissioned the building of the church in the late 16th century.

  • The Church itself is gorgeous, painted inside is not inferior to Italian churches. Spoils the impression kommertizacija Church. At the entrance stands a spiteful grandmother's rebuff and sightseers during the service. Because among us were locals, the grandmother was politely sent. When the second time came after the service to quietly enjoy the Church, the same grandmother began extorting money for visiting the tomb of the Radzivily's family. Once the money is given, then immediately narisovalas' active girl and started to broadcast something about church and the Radzivily's family. When approached, people started to hiss, you pay will not, then do not have the right to listen. When we realized that, in addition to visiting the crypt, we impose more and paid the tour, then tried to get away. The girl started yelling-I listened to you, pay any. Was politely sent. Very unpleasant such blatant extortion. I do a lot of where he was, but this was nowhere to be seen. It's a shame! Posted by e-mail the Abbot, this is done with his consent or initiative "on the ground". No response received

  • I believe that it is very important to know the history of their region and to transfer this knowledge to their children, I used to take his daughter Alexandra and she was very interesting! Returned again and again, and each time I have discovered for myself something new! Quite impressive!

  • Visit to the temple is free, but here is a visit to the ancestral tomb of the Radzivily's family for the donation: adults 1 Bel. rub, 50 kopecks. Inside the temple is very beautiful drawings executed in grisaille technique (feeling the 3D effect). Outside goes restoration.
