  • A must-see Church. Stunning in every way.
  • Kościol Pokoje w Jaworze (Church of Peace in Jaworze) is a beautiful historic Evangelical church protected by UNESCO. This is a simply stunning church and needs to be seen. Its is often times locked during the day when there are no church services going on. If you happen to be passing through at a time that the church appears to be closed go next door to the presbytery and ask the priest or the church caretaker to open it for you so that you can go across and have a look. It is highly recommended.
  • Wow!
