A beautiful church, a pearl of the baroque. The place of my baptism, first holy communion and confirmation.

Built in the years 1730-1738 in the baroque style. In the main nave of the church in Prudnik there is a painting of Our Lady of Help of Christians from the 18th century. Beautiful church, worth a look.

A very nice old church.

Beautiful baroque style church. Although it had to be rebuilt after the fire, it still retained its "atmosphere". It is worth paying attention to the painting of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (the one behind the altar). It comes from a time when the church had this call. Additionally, speaking as a parishioner and not a "local guide" there are very nice priests here. A place worth visiting.

Doune Castle

Doune Castle was originally built in the thirteenth century, then probably damaged in the Scottish Wars of Independence, before being rebuilt in its present form in the late 14th century by Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany (c. 1340–1420), the son of King Robert II of Scots, and Regent of Scotland from 1388 until his death. Duke Robert"s stronghold has survived relatively unchanged and complete, and the whole castle was traditionally thought of as the result of a single period of construction at this time. The castle passed to the crown in 1425, when Albany"s son was executed, and was used as a royal hunting lodge and dower house.

In the later 16th century, Doune became the property of the Earls of Moray. The castle saw military action during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms and Glencairn"s rising in the mid-17th century, and during the Jacobite risings of the late 17th century and 18th century.
