Small Baroque church on top of well
Jul 2019 • Solo
For once not a massive, imposing big church, but a charming little Baroque style structure completed in 1718 when Karl V ruled the Habsburg empire of which Bohemia was part. For this reason the church looks a bit like the ones in present day Austria. The well on top of which it was built is associated with the origins of Waldenburg/Walbrzych.

The oldest building of the city
Aug 2018 • Solo
A Gothic church, rebuilt into a Baroque style.Sanctuary of Our Lady of Sorrows placed in the center of Wałbrzych and is the oldest building of the city, called by the inhabitants "the heart of the city". According to chronicles, already in 1191, there was a settlement of Wałbrzych founded on a hill in the midst of a deep forest, near a wooden church dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. From the altar in this church came a spring, having the power to heal the sick. The legend says that a pious knight, in thanksgiving for saving him from certain death, set up among the forest on the hill, near the spring with miraculous water healing eye diseases, the statue of Our Lady of Sorrows, and built a wooden church for her glory.
