  • Worth the investment of time and effort to see and feel yourself this beauty! Undeniably beautiful road, beautiful views around, beautiful building, but the most interesting inside. The internal plan of the Basilica is a flow into each other circles and ellipses. Instead of the usual rectangular parallelepiped volumes and cubes of stringent moves inside the oval, smoothly interpenetrating each other ellipsoidal spaces. They emphasize and semicircular arches. The altar is located in the center of the temple! Halfway between choirs and main portal. Extraordinary and courageous decision of the architect suggests an unusual thought: maybe we are already on the clouds? And the Saints as if among us in the center of the temple. A magnificent decoration only reinforces that feeling. Baroque masterpiece! BTW patron saints of mostly lived and died for various reasons, before the separation of the churches, so that some of them are Orthodox (e.g. St. Panteleimon).

  • An incredibly beautiful place! 14ti Church of the Saints. Select time to visit, when there is a service, because while it is forbidden to move inside. If you are on time service, nearby there is a restaurant, where you can wait it out, if you are not ready to defend inside! To visit necessarily!!
