4.4/5 based on 460+ 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.

  • Very interesting and such location. Very interesting cemetery in the courtyard of the Church. In good weather, excellent views of the mountains. And the following shortcut to Vanga, I suggest you take a break for coffee and Apple Pie on the heat in this small café "in the middle of the road" owner zachwalała it very much, and she was right, tasted me.

  • Church is quite normal. Not doing any impressions. Simply wooden cottage with a cross in the middle. From a tape recorder playing the stories both of the Church and religion. Crazy is not.
