Dominican Church

Although a church has always stood on this site since the 14th century, the current building dates to the years after the destructive war of 1655-1661, during the Russian occupation. As "DK Eyewitness Travel: Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania" states, "The unassuming doorway, which can be easily missed, belies the sumptuous interior."

I came to really understand the meaning of "light streaming in" at this church. The light was streaming in everywhere.

Wonderful work here Helen, capturing the beauty of this richly decorated church and, of course, the light. V
