  • The temple in my second favorite style-in the Baroque style (the first-Gothic). Many sculptures, amphoras, and other ornaments. Below the temple is a sculpture of a praying saint. The altar is bright golden impressive. There is a copy of the Turin Shroud. Although a copy, but the look was interesting. At the bottom there are tombs of bishops and other saints. Before entering the temple, the sculpture of the Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky and the layout of the temple. Photos partly from the book bought in the temple.
