  • Opatów in the principle of the old but probably has no idea on the development of the market and create your own opatowskiego climate. Collegiate monument, which cannot be bypassed, a piece of history and there is something that feels. A stroll through the market without emotion, the gate of Warsaw as the gate-a small promotion.

  • We did a stop in Opatów by Krzyztopor Castle, coz an? Nicely restored gate of Warsaw with a very weak point IT, dull market with equally uninteresting buildings from different eras and closed kolegiate ... From the outside is an interesting piece of the building, nicely maintained garden, entrance to the Chapel, but unfortunately closed the main door phone-maybe because of the measure of the holiday week? Having more interesting plans zadzwonilem not, maybe another time August can see what is behind the door.

  • Dear parishioners of opatowscy, if you do not take matters into their own hands that I, my friends, and friends of my friends here will come no more! And so worth it! I'm not going to dwell on the history and the architectural work of the collegiate church, which you just have to spend a lot of attention. But excuse me, aside from the fact that we are not yet in the country of the zateizowanym, as some European countries, where churches are almost exclusively the museums and admission fees are collected, in Poland are still not met, to going to the temple to pay a mandatory tribute. The exception is the St Mary's Basilica in Gdańsk, which is clear in that regard for tourists solutions that do not conflict with the needs of people who want to just pray. Here is a chilling effect on a creepy Lady. In Opatów it just made me very ubodło and it's not because to three gold was for my budget a big load, only that this is a great scandal not only for me, as an ordinary tourist, but also for all believers.

The 18th century, and late Baroque turret on the Bell is snapping to the date: 1734. The narrow Romanesque window have survived well in the presbytery, transept and open area.

  • A wonderful property with wspanialszą history, just a pity that lack of audio books. Reading this guide among the praying, some smacks of earlier times.
