The exterior is striking enough, with its ornate facade, but it's worth paying the minimal fee to look inside - although it's not particularly roomy and if you get there at the same time as a tour group you'll be fighting for space.

When thinking about a chapel you think of a rather small building, but this is the contrary. Very beautiful and so huge. Worth visiting.

The facade of the chapel is stunning. The detail on the 17th century stone work really is amazing. You can't miss this building when you walk past. We did not enter as you have to pay 50uah for 1 room which we felt was rather...More

Excellent example of late Renaissance architecture. Chapel build for adviser to Polish king Stefan Batory. Extremely rich interior though very fatigue. During Soviet times chapel turned into municipal depot of cleaning materials. Now under hostage of local Polish community needs quick and solid restoration.

I was shocked to enter this pantheon of Boim family. The stonework inside is magnificent and it starts with a little detail on the entrance door.

One of the most beautiful works of religious art I’ve ever seen. Not open consistently and there’s a small entrance fee, but absolutely worth seeing.

The outside needs to be cleaned and restored but it is still a must see. The interior is even better. It’s opening and closing times seams to be in exact but it’s well worth going back if it’s not open the first time you try...More
