EU to allocate 1.5m euros for Nesvizh Corpus Christi Church renovation

The money allocated will be primarily spent for the renovation of the tomb. Another 600,000 BYN will be given by the state. Restoration of the temple has been on for six years already.

In 2016 scientists stumbled on a real sensation there: the frescoes were found on the facades.

They date back to the 16th-18th centuries. It was a surprise, as the historical sources have no information on the frescos. Church of Corpus Christi was built in 1593 on the model of the temple of the Holy Name of Jesus in Rome.

Alexander Kruglik, head of the ideology department of the Nesvizh District Executive Committee:
This church is unique both for the Republic of Belarus and for the world community. It houses the crypt with the graves of the prince of the Radziwill family. It's a big significant sight, a complex but at the same time an interesting one. The frescoes painted inside and outside the church are also unique.

There are not many such examples in the world. Frescoes from the outside is a unique thing for Belarus.
