  1. Wow, it´s stunning in all ways and I think they´ve done a reallly good job transforming it to a home. Might just be a bit too minimalistic for me, but yet totally breathtaking!

  6. Niesamowite są te wnętrza kościelne, bardzo przestronne, ciekawe czy łatwo je dogrzać, bo mnie się wydaje że dość chłodno tam jest.
