  • Great experience! Would highly recommend the group tours rather than an individual one. Very informative and interactive too. Our tour guide Simon was amazing. He made it super interesting and fun:) suitable for all ages I think. Very impressed with our tour!
  • Today my father and I went there and we enjoyed our visit (04-09-2019). The church is absolutely amazing and the lake is absolutely beautiful as well. We just loved it! It's probably one of the best attractions in Poland 🇵🇱. We're the visitors from Dublin, Ireland 🇮🇪
