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.

  • 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.

  • Inside is interesting. Collect 1 Bel. rouble for restoration before entering. You can descend into the cellar-vault, nothing really interesting there.
