Rzepin is a town in north-western Poland with 6,697 inhabitants. Situated in the Lubusz Voivodeship (since 1999), in Słubice 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.

ladnie podzielone zdjecie na cieple i zimne kolory. Tworzy to ciekawy kontrast i sprawia ze zdjecie przykuwa uwage nawet w miniaturze. Bardzo ciekawa architektura i swietna ostrosc na kazdym elemencie zdjecia.

Nice view of this old chapel. I like the space you have provided for the path with acts as a nice lead line to the doorway. Great detailing on the brickwork of the chapel. The architecture on the doorway is nice. Thanks for sharing a photo with excellent clarity and natural colors.

An imposing entrance, and one that begs to be opened and the inside explored. Very interesting looking building, I like this a lot! Great view and the frame is filled perfectly.
All the best

bardzo ciekawe chyba boczne wejscie, sporo atrakcyjnych zdobien. Lekka asymetria wskazuje na wiek. Pogoda zdaje sie jeszcze poglebiac surowosc tego miejsca.
Bardzo dobrze wypatrzone.

looks like this church has seen better days, same with the concrete on the ground too.
but that just adds to the interest in my opinion.
love the arched doorway, and how it looks uneven in certain places, and the bricks are chipped and showing its age.
rustic elegance :)

This is indeed an old chapel, love for its rustic colour and textures excellently exposed throughout revealing its features sharp in focus. But I love the sense of tranquility, great that you have done a great justice with this shot, Congrats.

Excellent view of old chapel entrance, nice details and superb symmetrical arrangement. Also your lower angle viewpoint is excellent. Well done.
