Photographer's Note

I've just realized that there're not too many bluehour photos in my gallery. So here's a quite fresh photo taken on friday in my hometown with the Christmas decoration still on.
I would be pleased if you told me your opinion about the photo!

The photo was taken in the 15th March square, the main square of Vác. This is one of the most beautiful baroque squares of Hungary. Formerly the church of Saint Michael was standing here, but it was disassembled in 1761. You can see its ruins in the foreground. It was recunstructed in 2006. The market was working in the square till 1951. The church you can see here is the Church of the Whites (Fehérek temploma).

Dominican church of Our Lady of Victory (Fehérek temploma), Vác-Felsőváros
The vernacular name of this Baroque-style church, Church of the Whites (Fehérek temploma) refers to the colour of the robes of Dominican friars. Its construction was delayed from 1699 to 1755 due to the Rákóczi Freedom Fight. The Rococo furnishing inside were created between 1760 and 1770.
The single nave Baroque church with its unassuming exterior well blends into the main square's atmosphere and is contrasted by the interior's Rococo ornamentation.
Of singular significance are burial finds from Baroque times, recently unearthed in the crypt of the church. These finds are exhibited in one of the cellars of the square.
The church may be visited on prior arrangement.
