Visited in late May. Initially thinking 'another church' we were blown away. Simply stunning inside and out. Probably rates as one of the best churches we've ever been inside. Words and photos don't do it justice, you have to see it with your own eyes...More

So unique and beautiful. Historical must see landmark in Jawor. Evangelic church made from non-building materials only. Absolutely stunning interior. There is also wonderful park surrounding this church. Guided tours available and there're also concerts of classical music arranged.

Interesting place to visit, and learn of it's interesting history. An extraordinary building. We didn't explore the rest of the town, but there was a nice café nearby. We went in September 2016, and it was freezing inside the church, so take some warm clothes!
