A place with a nice name Albertine - this is a suburb of Slonim, which today actually belongs to the city and it is rather correct to call it the outskirts. Here, in addition to the park complex and the former estate of the Puslovskys You can see Church of the Virgin Marybuilt in the first half of the 20th century.

The temple was built during the period when Slonim was part of Interwar Poland and dates back to 1937 (some sources have other dates: 36 and 38)

Made of yellow brick with features of neo-gothic architecture. The building is rectangular in shape, it has a high bell tower with a spire. There is a rose window on the facade, and oblong windows along the perimeter, otherwise the church is quite simple.

A statue of Jesus Christ was found behind the church building.

Old photographs show that earlier she (*possibly another statue) stood on an obelisk pedestal to the right of the temple. Why Jesus was sent “into exile” remains unknown, possibly due to ongoing renovations.

Church in Albertina

In Soviet times, the Church of the Virgin Mary was not used. In the early 2000s, cosmetic repairs were made: the roof was replaced, new windows were installed and the building itself was half painted.
