Wang Church, Karpacz

(4.4/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Visit Wang Church to see a medieval Norwegian wooden church built without nails and held together by wooden joints. A Prussian king bought this 12th-century stave church from a village in Norway. The building was taken to pieces, shipped in boxes, and reconstructed in southern Poland in 1844. Check out the Norwegian architectural details carved in wood, such as lions, winged dragons, and runes. Look for a runic inscription on the doorway of the church, probably identifying artist Eindridi--nicknamed dexterous or handy--responsible for the decorations. The pathway near the church is lined with many stalls selling tourist gifts, food and hot drinks, beer, and vodka.

  • Wang is mandatory. It is worth at least once to visit it from the inside. The area around the Wang is very well maintained. You need to see.

  • One of the places where you need to be. Unique and unrepeatable. Important weather super view. It is worth to spend some time on a walk around the Church.

  • I was with my son an interesting building, some beautiful photos and a souvenir for life. If you are not near worth seeing.

  • Stylish church which is definitely 'must see' during your visit in Karpacz. Norwegian descent of this structure makes it outstanding comparing to the other wooden churches in Poland.
  • Nice church. Have to buy ticket to get inside, absolutely no order to the lineups to get inside, people shoving their way in front of you, random groups suddenly allowed ahead of everyone in line, ticket vendor sells more group tickets than there are people allowed inside the church. It is beautiful, but don't waste your time going inside. Look at inside on google images.
  • Very nice and unique church! An excellent starting point for hiking trip towards Snežka mountain.
  • Nice and unique church. Worth seeing.
