Cathedral of Saint Virgin Mary


This Roman Catholic baroque church built for Jesuits in 1700-1710 is currently the main catholic church of Belarus. In the past, Swedish king Carl XII, Ukrainian hetman Ivan Mazepa and Russian Tsar Peter I stayed in the nearby Jesuit Collegiums building. In the Soviet times, the building was repurposed for the needs of the Spartak sporting society. In 1993, it was returned to the Catholic Church. The interior of the church holds the works of arts of Rococo period. One of its bells is dedicated to Pope John Paul II.
