Photographer's Note

Another "must see" place in Belarus. It's Roman Catholic Church called Farny (former Jesuit Church). It was built in 1584-1593 by Ian Maria Bernardoni and it's a first baroque building on the territory of Belarus and it never was rebuilt. The Church was built by order of Mikolay Krzystof Radzivill Sirotka, Belarussian prince and the Master of the city. Inside the temple you can see the monument to him. The temple's crypt is a burial-vault of Radzivill family. The first burial dated 1616 (the founder of the temple Radzivill Sirotka was buried) and the latest dated 1936. Total of 78 embalmed bodies of Radzivill family buried in the crypt.

Of course, there are many legends about this Temple...
