Church of St Anthony of Padua, Pastavy

This building, the Catholic church of St Anthony of Padua in Pastavy, was constructed between 1898 and 1904 on the site of a former Franciscan monastery, founded in 1617.  It was severely damaged during the First World War but reconstructed in the 1920s and renovated again in 1988.  Pastavy is a town in the Vitebsk region of Belarus.

  1. What a beautiful card. The church certainly stands out with its reflection in the water.
