Built in 1941 but turned into a radio factory and only reopened in 1997 this fine church on a hill in Kaunas offers wide views of the city from its roof terrace.When I visited this church in 2012 it was decorated for a marriage. The flowers support the wide length of the nave, if you have a look at the walls you will see a modern Stations of the Cross.

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.

A sunset view of Naarden, Netherlands with the river in front. Naarden is a nice town with calm streets and a nice church still surrounded by fortified walls.

Still, one of my favourite places, in my favourite country is Telc, surrounded by three lakes, full of old Renaissance and Barocke architecture, good music, fine food and beautiful weather.

This is a view of Chapel of Our Lady, or better known as Beauchamp Chapel of the Collegiate Church of St Mary, Warwick. Some Earls of Warwick and Leicester are buried here, their huge castle is close.
The bell tune sounds nice:
Panorama processed as painting inside St. Cuthbert just Northwest of the Castle in Edinburgh, quite worth a visit!
Hope you’ll like this.
The wooden interior and the light in the choir benches impressed me very much when I had the opportunity to visit Holy Rude church in Stirling two years ago. I admire the Brish choral music very much, I always get the chills listening to a choir in such a church.
