Моя мечта наконец-то сбылась. Я увидела этот чудо-костёл! Он поистине поражает своим великолепием и величием! Даже ради него одного стоит уже ехать на эту экскурсию. А то, что по пути заезжаешь в другие местечки-это дополнительный приятный бонус. Экскурсия организована профессионально. Ничего лишнего. Много полезной информации по дороге. Подобраны интересные объекты и места по пути следования. Скучать не приходилось. Всё насыщенно, интересно и познавательно. Рекомендую очень! Увидеть костёл в Гервятах и умереть. Это точно про него)
