Hopefully the temporary exhibition on restoration of paintings of the Madonna will still be there for you to see. BTW - this is part of a tour package called Belfry, Crypts, Treasury.

Unfortunately, during the Soviet times, the church was distroyed and a lot of things was stolen. Anyway, now the church is reconstructed and opened as church heritage museum.... 更多
