Wielki Buczek

In the church in Wielki Buczek one can see an exceptional and extremely valuable painting which is almost 400 years old. What does the symbolical painting present? Who was portrayed?

Batorowo

In the church in Batorowo there is an untypical construction made from wooden posts. Although now it seems useless, in the past it had a very important function. What was it?

Wysoka

250 years ago an excellent sculpture workshop of Ephraim Gerlach found its way to the church in Wysoka. In accordance with the artistic trends of the time, he introduced extremely rich decorations to the building. There were almost 50 figures of patron saints and angles among them.
