Trip Planner: Europe / Belarus / Minsk Region / Nesvizh District / Nesvizh / Corpus Christi Church in Nesvizh
See one of the oldest Baroque structures outside Italy at Corpus Christi Church in Nesvizh. The church is an early Jesuit temple which influenced the later architecture of Belarus, Poland, and Lithuania. Take note of the Italian-style frescoes on the interior walls and the large painting of the Last Supper in the apse behind the main altar. A crypt under the church houses the remains of nearly 80 members of the powerful Radziwiłł family, who were politicians and art patrons. Mikołaj Krzysztof "the Orphan" Radziwiłł commissioned the building of the church in the late 16th century.

It's right next to the Nesvizh Castle. Good to stop by and check it out. It's under renovation but you can still go inside. more »
Very beautiful place, not far from Nesvizh castle.
Nothing special from outside. But everything turns out then you come inside. You can’t imagine such beauty. Everthing is left authentic from the 16th-18th centuries: incredible murals and paintings. There is Radvilas family mausoleum in the underground of this church. Descentans of this family have been buried here since 16th century till now. The founder of this church - Nicholas Christopher Radvila “The Orphan” is resting here too.
