Photographer's Note

Rzepin is a town in north-western Poland with 6,697 inhabitants. Situated in the Lubusz Voivodeship (since 1999), in S³ubice County it is a seat of the urban-rural Rzepin Gmina. From 1975 until 1998 the town, from an administrative point of view, belonged to the Gorzów Wielkopolski Voivodeship.

Sacred Heart of Jesus Church – built around the mid-13th century in the late-Romanesque style, converted in the neo-Gothic style in 1878, which coincided with the addition of a belfry. Only stone walls of the south and the north elevations along with the chancel with three characteristic windows have remained from the previous sanctuary. A 15th-century Gothic brick chapel annex with an ogival portal and groin vault is adjacent to the church from the North. The church has been in possession of 19-pipe organs since 1879. Currently the parochial church is situated in the town center on the Koscielny square.
