  • The church is a very nice complement located next to the park. Renovated in an interesting way (divided into old and new part) is a compulsory point of the tour in Grodno.

  • An ancient unusual church. I have never seen such churches anywhere. The mosaic outside is awesome. And a very beautiful place on a hill above the river Neman.

  • A peaceful place.
