You could say it’s a Polish take on Taj Mahal. Gold, history, religion, and nationalism seem to all come together seamlessly, or… do they? In any case, it’s definitely worth visiting the place for its impressive architecture and a bit surreal atmosphere.
It's a very impressive complex. It shows that it is very modern, but the architecture is imposing and the art inside is beautiful. Upon entering we were welcomed with an organ concert. The sound blasting from all air organs made the air vibrate and it felt humbling. Definitely a monument for the centuries to come.
