#1348 Belarus

The Corpus Christi Church in NesvizhBelarus is an early Jesuit church and one of the oldest baroque structures outside Italy, influencing the later architecture of BelarusPoland and Lithuania. Commissioned by Lithuanian nobleman Prince Nicholas Radziwill and constructed in 1587-1593 by Gian Maria Bernardoni, it contains graves of members of the powerful Lithuanian house of Radziwiłł.

Thank you, Albina !
