  • Very Old Church.

    When we went inside there was a choir going on. Got a chance to view it. Its was really nice and very old church. This was again part our tour.

  • Coat of Arms Everywhere

    Really interesting display of the coat of arms of the families buried in the church. It has bee Lutheran for 500 years and was a Catholic Church before that. 2 euros entrance price.

  • popular old church

    WE came across St.Mary's pretty much church by accident,as it is quite small and hidden away by surrounding buildings. We decided to go in, and could enjoy it's simple and historic beauty.
