Photographer's Note

Bydgoszcz is a city located in northern Poland, on the Brda and Vistula rivers. Bydgoszcz is the 8th-largest city in Poland. It has been the seat of Bydgoszcz County and the co-capital, with Toru, of the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship since 1999. Prior to this, between 1947 and 1998, it was the capital of the Bydgoszcz Voivodeship, and before that, of the Pomeranian Voivodeship between 1945 and 1947.

Church of Our Lady Queen of Peace.
Formerly Bernardine church. The Bernardine order was established in Bydgoszcz in 1480 by bishop Stanislaw of Klobuck. This late gothic building was erected in 1552 - 1557 on the site of an older monaster that was burned down. In the 17th century an additional chapel and a square tower were built. After the convent was liquidated in 1829 the Bernardine church was transferred to the evangelical community. From 1838 the sanctuary has served as a garrison church. In 1999 the 17/18th century fresco was discovered on the nav.
