If you are in Karpacz, go for a nice 3 km walk to see Wang church. It is all wooden, no nails were used for the construction and the panorama from the garden around the church is perfect for pictures. It is as old as 12th century, was built in Norway and moved to Berlin and finally to Poland.

It is a nice piece of history and architecture on the way to Karkoszone mountains. But still, doesnt feel like it is its place there. The church is rather small and You wont need more than 30 minutes to visit. For its price, I would say it could be much more than just a pile of wood.

Very nice and calming place, some great views and a lot of information on the history of the church. Amazing how this was put in situ so long ago...... Well worth a visit and makes some great photos.

Well worth the long walk (from lower Karpacz)..Some caution is needed on hilly bits if covered in snow and not gritted..(the walk was very long and past 3 ski schools/slopes and the huge imposing hotel that stands like a gaint in the small valley)But the veiw from the graveyard alone was worth the walk.Again I had good company and translation...

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