I'm a big fan of the countless beautiful churches that exist in Poland.I recommend people look up St Mary's Church in Gdansk and St Mary's basilica in Krakow. The latter having on of the most magnificent altarpieces in existence created by the famed German sculptor Veit Stoss. I cant wait for more pics.

LUBLIN
The Chapel of the Holy Trinity



The Church of the Holy Trinity called the Chapel of Lublin Castle ranks among the most precious and interesting monuments of Medieval architecture not only in Poland but also in the European context. It is a relic where the two great cultural traditions of the East and the West meet and mingle. The interior of this Gothic chapel was covered in 1418 with magnificent Russo-Byzantine murals.

The earliest mention of the chapel comes from 1326. The Gothic chapel as we have it now was erected in the second half of the 14th century, and shows links with the builders’ workshops of Kasimir the Great (1333-1370). In the next century, founded by King Władysław Jagiełło, Russian painters headed by Master Andriej covered the interior with fresco paintings in Eastern style and technique. The founding donor inscription preserved on the rood-screen arch gives the date of the completion of the job (10 August 1418) and the name of the master painter.

The church functioned as the Royal Chapel. In the 16th century it acquired a Renaissance portal and in the 17th century a gable on the front façade in the style of local Renaissance. It witnessed a number of momentous historical events, like the Union of Lublin in 1569. In early 19th century the chapel became part of the prison complex, and the mural paintings were covered with whitewash.

In 1889 the frescos were discovered by a local painter Józef Smoliński who uncovered the donor scene. It was then that conservation work on the relic started and was continued for many years until its completion in 1997. Considering the difficulty of the undertaking and the scope of problems to be solved, it was a great achievement in conservation.
