Church of the Holy Spirit

Built in an early Baroque style, the Church of the Holy Spirit is the country's foremost place of Orthodox worship. You enter through the neo-Byzantine monastery portal. It was designed by Jan Krzysztof Glaubitz between 1749 and 1753. The interior is made up of vaults and pink, blue and white columns, against which a peppermint-green Baroque altar (18C) serving as an iconostasis stands out. The crypt holds the bodies of three saints (John, Anthony, and Eustathios), 14C martyrs.
