SACRAL ART EXPOSITION

The exposition displays liturgical things, crockery, apparels, altar tackle, and art objects of religious plot. The interior of the chapel strongly suffered after closing of the monastery (in 1863) and was finished to be renovated in 2004. The mural altars were renewed; the windows were decorated with the stained glass depicting St. Dominic and St. John Nepamukas figures. Under the chapel there is a cellar, where the liturgical set out is on the display. The chapel long ago did not see the scarifying of the mess, and only thanks to the museum this cultural and historical heritage was given back its sacral spirit. We also expect that it will become an object for sightseeing of the town guests! Visit the Sacral Art Exposition!
