Bartoszyce Church

Bartoszyce, Poland

The origin of Bartoszyce Church is unknown. It was probably build on place of the castle chapel, of which we have some information from 1404, destroyed together with the castle half a century later by the inhabitants of Bartoszyce. The second medieval church in Bartoszyce, at Nowowiejskiego Street, is a simple, monolayer structure following a rectangle plan. Probably it originates from the XV century, although there are some assumptions that it could have been build already in the period of first city location. The bell tower has been added to the facade in the 19th century. The altar and pulpit supported by an angel are an example of Baroque carving of the first quarter of 18th century.

To nie jest kościół wybudowany w starym stylu , ale i tak czuć w zniosłą atmosferę

Kościół sam w sobie jest ładny w środku. Ale na zewnatrz każdy widzi...od lat zbierane są pieniądze od mieszkańców a prace idą powolnie. Pewnie dlatego by móc zbierać do samego końca. Szkoda że msze dla dzieci nie są fajne A kiedyś byly

Narikala Castle

Narikala is an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the Kura River. The fortress consists of two walled sections on a steep hill between the sulphur baths and the botanical gardens of Tbilisi. On the lower court there is the recently restored St Nicholas church. Newly built in 1996–1997, it replaces the original 13th-century church that was destroyed in a fire. The new church is of 'prescribed cross' type, having doors on three sides. The internal part of the church is decorated with the frescos showing scenes both from the Bible and history of Georgia.

The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel. It was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by king David the Builder (1089–1125). Most of extant fortifications date from the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1827, parts of the fortress were damaged by an earthquake and demolished.
