Basilica of St. Adalbert

GRHC - 2010

The architecture of the Basilica is Romanesque, the large dome, partially seen on the right of the photo, is Byzantine in style, and the rose window as well as those on the side of the church are Gothic in style. Two smaller domes top the two towers, which contain bells, adjacent to the front entry of the building.
