Wang Church is a nice place to spend some time with family. I was surprised of mixing Christian and Asian culture.

You should purchase a ticket to enter the church ca 5-7 PLN pp and see it inside and in detail. As we are polish we could enjoy the prepared guide tape... More

Overlooking karpacz is the most remarkable little wooden church,what makes it so special is that apart from the architecture,it was completely built without using any nails and is held together just by wooden joints.

Nordic medieaval chruch in the middle of Silesia, right next to polish-czech border? Why not! I was very sceptical about this place till I get there. In the highst place of Karpacz you can find beautiful wooden church moved from Scandinavia in 19th century. Church is sourrouding by old cementery. From north side you have great view on Sniezka Mountain... More

An all- wood church brought here by a norwegian king. Quite small but worth a quick visit. A very popular tourist attraction with lovely surrounding woods.
