Wordless Wednesday - Gdansk #4



This was a beautiful, stoic church built right around the year 1400, located near the historic downtown of Gdansk. The church was closed for renovations, as many are these days. They are literally crumbling down to the ground, as they were neglected during the years of communism. I was especially intrigued by the beautiful door, pictured on top, which was added about a decade ago to commemorate a special visit by Pope John Paul.

Just beautiful. That's good that they are renovating these. It'd be a shame to lose such treasures.
