Piekary is a small town where I work. It is completely different from my hometown which is bigger and older. But Piekary Slaskie is famous for its Mound and The Basilica of St. Mary and St. Bartholomew. I have visited this church with my international friends on 29th September 2014. The weather was perfect and we had a great time.
