During our time at home we went for a day trip to Aglona, it is a small but very beautiful village by the lake and it is most famous or its impressive baroque style Basilica, decorated with two 60 meters towers. Every year on 15th of August pilgrims from around the world are gathering on a site of Basilica to celebrate the day of Assumption of Virgin Mary into Heaven. This is one of the best known sacred site in the world which holds thousands of people every year on that date, but we were there couple days before, so we had an opportunity to view the area in its natural state.
Not far from to the Basilica’s site there is another spiritual place called The Hill of the King. It is unique sort of garden in which local enthusiasts carved whole Biblical series in large wooden sculptures (one of the largest sculpture is 14 meters).
