From outside it does actually look like a long used, worn out building that urgently needs renovation. On the inside the rays of sunlight coming through the colorful windows give you a complete different experience. Magical and nice...but cold and strong. Depending on where you...More

Wow this is some interior of a church. Wonderful history, creative craftmanship throughtout. Well worth a visit and the bonus is that it's free. Must admit on first seeing the exterior I thought that the place had fallen into disuse! Two pairs of nesting storks...More

We paid one euro each for entrance. The architecture was gorgeous and there are storks on the rooftop you can see from outside the church. It was great to escape the heat for a little while and enjoy the art.

The church was closed during my visit, but the outside is very interesting with beautifully carved stone facades. It was good to see storks still resident at this time of year. A really nice building.
