Max Reger- Toccata in d

St. Jakub, Olsztyn

allenstein [1600x1200]

The old gothic vault and the impressive walls made of bricks are very impressive in Olsztyn’s (Allenstein) St. Jakub church. THe town has a small old city, still with many interesting other places like a Teutonic Order Castle.I was lucky because the church was nicely illuminated when I visited it, especially the small Ikon of Mary drew my attention.

Branicki Palais Bialystok

bialystok [1600x1200]A visit of Eastern Poland led metrainwise to Bialystok with a small but pleasant old town centre and a quite huge Branicki-Palais. Today, part of the faculty of medicine of the university is placed here. It’s called the Versailles of Poland, however other palaces claim being that too.
