  • A large Catholic church with lots of things to look at and a lot of history. Unfortunately, the modern renovations do not match the church interior as a whole, it is clear where the gold has been replaced with plastics and the new additions, made of cheap plywood, simply do not match with the older pieces in the church. Overall a well-kept and quite welcoming place, it is lovely to hear the full organ and singing during service. A key tip is to visit in the mid-afternoon when the sun will shine through the stained glass windows at the top of the church above the organ, it looks fantastic.
  • Amazing size and neo barok decorations. Free entrance.
  • Beautiful inside especially at Christmas
  • Excellent religious monument .
  • One of the modt beautiful churches i have ever seen
