The church is quite nice. Despite it is claimed to be build without a single nail, there are plenty of nails (hiwever still less than in typical Polish wooden building).

As soon I caught the glimpse of this church in the app, I knew that's one place I'll want to visit for sure. After doing so, I was not disappointed. It gives off a certain nordic vibe (which makes sense since it was transported from...More

Interesting place to visit while exploring Karpacz or on the way to the mountains. Located just by the entrance to the National Park of Karkonosze. A little bit of history from across the Baltic sea. Nice views from the yard.

One of my favourite places in Polish mountains in general. Really breathtaking when you see it alive. You can get really close by bus, so most people can get there without problems.

Probably the most famous and popular tourist attraction in Karpacz. This Stave church built in Norway in the 12th century was brought to Karpacz in 1842 by the King of Prussia. It is constructed completely without nails which make the task of dismantling, transporting and...More

This wonderful church made without nails was transported from Norway to the Polish mountains thanks to Friedrich Wilhelm II. Beautiful sculpted walls, pillars and ornaments show a holy blend between Norse tradition and Christianity. The tour is only punctual as it is an active church,...More
