The interior of the church

The Corpus Christi Church in Nesvizh, Belarus, is an early Jesuit church[1] and one of the oldest baroque structures outside Italy,[2] influencing the later architecture of Poland, Belarus and Lithuania. Commissioned by Prince Nicholas Radziwill and constructed in 1587-1593 by Gian Maria Bernardoni during the times of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth,[2] it contains tombs of powerful Radiziwiłł family members.
