That’s one of the stranger places you come by when you’re also visiting smaller places which are not too popular. This house is to find in Swidnica, Poland. We walked around the town a bit as we had all day to spend there. When we passed the prison, we found that house right next to it. It’s so strange; I just had to take a photo. What do you think is the reason for that look? War?
“To get a good photo from Warsaw, you have to take it from the Palace of Culture – because that’s the only photo where that Palace isn’t on.” I don’t remember who it said or wrote, but I immediately recalled that sentence when I was the first time in Warsaw. Personally, I don’t understand the complaining about the Palace as I like the building. But if you don’t like it, here you go: A photo of Warsaw without the Palace of Culture!
What you see here ist he Palace on the Isle (Pałac na Wyspie) in the Royal Łazienki (Łazienki Królewskie) in Warsaw. You can see it as the Royal Garden of Poland. This Palace on the Isle was constructed in 1689 and has been the summer residence of the last king of Poland.
Swidnica does not only offer the Church of Peace which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage but also another quite impressive Cathedral. This is the Curch of Saints Stanislav and Vaclav (Katedra św. Stanisława i św. Wacława w Świdnicy). It was built in 14th century and the 103m high tower is the biggest in Silesia. More information on the photo!
The Church of Peace in Swidnica (Świdnica, Poland) is one of the two remaining Churches of Peace which belong to the UNESCO World Heritage. From outside it doesn’t even look that impressive on first sight. But that changes when you have a look inside and get to know about the history of the church.
The Church of Peace in Swidnica was built in the 17th century. What’s special is that it is an evangelical church. Why is that special? Click here to read more!
