Holy Cross Church

Brzeg, Poland

The Holy Cross Church was built between 1734 and 1739 (the towers were built in between 1854 and 1856) in the location of the destroyed in 1545 monastery of the Dominicans - for the need of Jesuits which arrived to the town in 1677 (architect J. Frisch). The church has a single-aisle, with a number of side chapels and the tribunes. The ceiling stands out due to J.Kubena frescoes (1739-1745) presenting the glory of the Holy Cross, the missions of the Jesuit Order and figures of saints.

A beautiful church located next to the Silesian Piast castle.

It doesn't impress from the outside, but once you enter, you are surrounded by a baroque pearl. He throws us on the floor. Not only is it worth it, but it is necessary.

The church is located right next to the castle in Brzeg. It was built in the first half of the 13th century. It can be said that there is one of the most beautiful churches in the province. Opole. The vaults and walls are decorated with Baroque painting, it consists of 115 scenes on icons with various content. Worth a visit when visiting the castle.

Duino Castle

Duino Castle was built by the Wallsee family in 1389 on the cliffs overlooking the Gulf of Trieste. It replaced an older castle from the 11th century. Over time, the Wallsee family disappeared and the castle, after having been used as a prison, became the residence of the Luogar and Hofer.

At the end of the 19th century it became the property of Prince Alexander von Thurn und Taxis from the Czech branch of the House of Thurn and Taxis. It remains with the family to this day with his great-grandson Prince Carlo Alessandro della Torre e Tasso, Duke of Castel Duino the current owner. The castle has been opened to the public as a museum and park.
