GORLITZ, GERMANY – 2 Churches of Interest

Sun Organ – one of a kind

May 6, 2015

Of  all the churches I ventured into in Gorlitz, two of them made an impression on me.

St Peter and Paul, built in 1457 in the Gothic style, has the Sun Organ in the above photo and also a very colorful Baptism Basin:

I guess the practice is to grab a cushion as you walk in for a service:

Nave of St. Peter and Paul

The other, Church Our Lady,  was pretty but I found the columns on both sides  to have odd inserts:

Nave of Church of our Lady. Do you see them on the sides at the top?

Another bird of the day.  Reminds  me of a Double-Stuffed Oreo.

Thanks for reading!

    Only a real Oreo afficiando would see a bird and think “double stuffed!” Loved the comment, and, as always, love hearing and seeing your trips. We have lots to talk about when you return! Enjoy the journey.
