Wooden Churches

This private trip is a superb choice for anybody who would like to experience something special while exploring the rural areas of south-eastern Poland.

Six wooden churches of southern Little Poland were inscribed on the UNESCO heritage list as the most representative examples of surviving Gothic churches built in horizontal log technique. Although they belong to Roman Catholic tradition, they embody spirit characteristic for the closed regions of Eastern Europe. You can find similar landmarks in Romania (the Maramures region) or in the neighbouring areas of Slovakia.. These churches were usually sponsored by rich local nobility. Somewhat different Orthodox wooden churches can be found further to the east in Russia, Belarus and the Ukraine.
