Beautiful church in Swidnica
The church is very nice, it can be bypassed from all sides, but thanks to the mature trees and cemetery tombstones, it is quite difficult to take photos.
In addition to the church, there are several other interesting buildings in the same architectural style. The bell tower is probably the most distinctive of them.
