Photographer's Note

Cathedral of Assumpion of St. Mary
Koカcielna Street 2
At first, the marshall of Big Lithuanian Dutchy Piotr Wiesioウowski, founded a wooden chapel in 1581. Then, in 1617 it became brick. It was in use till XIX c., but it showed it was obviously too small for developing city. In 1900-5 architect Jzef Pius Dziekoski designed a new church. Since 1985 it's been a Basilica Minor, due to John Paul II. Inside, there's a grave of Branicki family, rich people wholived in a big palace near the church. It's almost a copy of st. Florian cathedral in Warsaw, made by the same architect.
