Wooden XVI-century church


In the photo yesterday was the wooden belfry standing next to this old wooden church. The Mass is still celebrated here every Sunday. Below is the history of this church (jotted down from the info table):

Katowice Church (16th century).
Church of St. Michael the Archangel, 1510; transfered in 1938 from Syrynia; with an end-fitted log framework construction and shingled roof. Free-standing bell-tower, before 1679; historic lychgate and wooden fence around the churchyard.

Nice DP blog, kjola.

I guess there's little chance that you'll move to Sopot and blog from there ;-)?

I really miss my hometown...

When i happened to visit here, it was closed, the very friendly security guard found out we were from Africa and let us walk around inside and take pictures.
