Get around

Peace Church

See

The Peace Church (Ksciol Pokojowe) is on the UNESCO World Heritage List- dating from the 1600's and built out of unusual materials (wood and hay), it resembles a theatre or opera house more than a church. Covered top to bottom in beautiful, old, folk-art-style paintings, the Peace Church is absolutely worth a visit.

Behind the Peace Church is an old German cemetery which, as of July 2008, was completely overgrown, giving it a creepy atmosphere and making it a great destination for photographers and seekers of the arcane.

Do

Attend the summer Bach Festival in July. Concerts are held in the Church of Peace and other venues in the town. For further details go to www.bach-cantatas.com and follow the links through 'schedule of concerts' and 'Bach festivals'.
