Christ’s Resurrection Church Kaunas

kaunas3 [1600x1200]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.

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.

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.

View of Telc

telc4 [1600x1200]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.
