    Open - chapel in Studziennicza

    by Raimix Updated Feb 8, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Open air chapel is more or less looking more Buddhist than Catholic. I haven’t found any information about this place, but as there was chance to see, it is very popular for photos making, especially for important occasions (weddings, so on).

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Augustow channel probably is the most popular spot in town and in whole region of Poland. It was dug at the first half of 19th century. It connected river-basins of Nemunas and Vistula. The length of Augustow channel is 101,2 kilometres, about 20 kilometres are in Belarusian side. The popularity of channel is increased due to very nice landscape views, waters (lakes, rivers), old unique constructions of water - level changing constructions.

    It is possible that Augustow channel in future could be inscribed into UNESCO World heritage list.
