Sadly closed when we got there, a local playgroup was running inside. We couldn't find out the opening times. A nice walk along the river to get there .

The wall murals are stunning in this church, it's one of the most beautiful places I've seen, so definitely worth checking out. And it doesn't cost a thing to do so!

I recommend to go there, it is a nice walk along the river. What impressed me more was the painting inside the church, totally different to what i saw in the past.

The grounds around the church are undergoing repairs and access was a little difficult. Expect to have completed in September. The mural painting is very good and the person at the church gave an excellent explanation. Do not miss memorial and cemetery

A short walk from downtown, a very nice church both the inside and out. As there is not much to do in town, put this on your list.

A very beautiful and unique church, worth of seeing. Unfortunately timetable was too strict to stay for the service.

A group of us were taken to this beautiful Evangelical / Lutheran Church. The frescoes and organ along with the interior is extraordinarily beautiful. The main frescoe is is magnificent. The story of the frescoe was told to us by a lovely young woman, a church member.

Beautiful church, both inside & outside. There happened to be a service when I visited on a Sunday morning, and they even provide headphone audio translation!

It is a very interesting place to visit. Although the church is simple from architectural perspective its fresco is unique. The fresco's story and its representational tools reflect the recent history of the town and the life this part of the world. We received interesting pieces of information from the girl working at church.

Thank Robert R
