Kalozha Church Boris-Gleb Church Reviews
Kościół stanowi bardzo ładne dopełnienie znajdującego się obok parku. Wyremontowany w ciekawy sposób (podzielony na starą i nową częśc) stanowi obowiązkowy punkt wycieczki po Grodnie. more »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.
Старинная необычная церковь. Подобных церквей нигде не видела. Мозаика снаружи потрясающая. И очень красивое место на холме над рекой Неман. more »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.
