Bardo Slaskie is a little town in Lower Silesia at the road between Czech Prague and Wrocław. It is located on a hill over the gorge of Nysa Klodzka. It was founded in the 10th century by Polish knights as a defensive, fortified settlement to secure the southern border of the Lower Silesian lands. This trade route between Prague and Wrocław was part of the Amber Road and had great importance for the region.
The town had a rich history, it was acquired by the Czechs, Poles and Prussians. Its location has been used by the Cistercians who built the baroque church there. Church has become a place of pilgrimage because of the small miraculous figure of the Virgin Mary. The town developed as a pilgrimage place. Since 1900, this church was administered by Redemptorist Order.
In the picture you can see the Basilica of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Bardo and monastery buildings towering above the river valley.

A pleasant view of the buildings against a fluffy cloudy sky.
The river is murky in colour which makes me think you have had a lot of rain, similar to us here in England.

If I live in one of those buildings I would keep my windows open and listen to the river at night, that would put me to sleep and sleep well. Good capture with good details. Well done, tfs.

W pierwszym momencie myslalem ze to kalasztor w Tyncu pod Krakowem. Ma podobne wierze jak ten tyniecki oraz jest zlokalizowany tez nad rzeka tylko Wisla.
Swietne kompozycyjne zdjecie klasztoru wylaniajacego sie z drzew na tle niebiesko-bialego nieba. Dobrej jakosci zdjecie przy swietnych kolorach, swietle oraz ostrosci.
