Vang stave church

The church is one of the biggest attractions in Karpacz, visited by over 200 000 tourists per annum. Vang stave church (Polish: Świątynia Wang; Norwegian: Vang stavkyrkje) is a stave church which was bought by King Frederick William IV of Prussia and transferred from Vang in the Valdres region of Norway and re-erected in 1842 in Brückenberg near Krummhübel in Silesia, now Karpacz in the Karkonosze mountains of Poland. It was originally used by a congregation belonging to the Church of Norway, then the Evangelical Church of Prussia, and now serves the Evangelical-Augsburg Church in Poland.

I visited it with a dog, so I couldn’t go inside but anyway, it’s a very interesting wooden building with a lot of carved details. Also, it’s localized at the beginning/end of a nice trail so you can visit it on the occasion.
