One of the hidden gems of Southern Poland, not the easiest to access if you're just visiting Poland as there are no direct train connections to this area. A very impressive painting and work of art in a historical context. The presentation is very informative although it's from a single speakerphone system, meaning that you might listen to it in different languages before is your turn. Very reasonable price, which an extra for photos that doesn't hurt your pocket. A UNESCO heritage worth of trying to find a detour to visit.

The Church of Peace, which is a real pearl, contracts with the ruins of the Castle in Jawor and therefore I have decided to associate the town with this beautiful church , not the ruins and the boarded castle windows.

This is a must-see, unique church with a phenomenal design. 12 PLN entry fee in cash is definitely worth to pay.

....worth travelling many many miles just to see it from both out- and inside. Once you discover the existence of this place, find the written description to get a context and than just go there and enjoy its exceptionality and beauty.
Just consider the times of services - the church is closed for turists at those times.

Traveling west from Wroclaw, this massive jewel of a church is only a 30 minute detour (back and forth) off the motorway. Not going to see it would be a waste!

It is an impressive church unlike any you've seen before. Just like the stave churches in Scandinavia this church is different from most Christian places of worship across Europe. Built entirely without stone and yet on the inside it's as big as a medieval opera house gets. Really impressive.

This was so amazing, it was above my inmagination, on the outside it did not look spectaculair, but when we enterd the church, It was unbelievable inside, it sure is one of the greatest site of Unesco. There is no guided tour, but they play a spoken tape in your language

It was a very beautiful wood-frame structure church, one of two that still remains from the three that the Treaty of Westphalia allowed Protestants to build. The construction had to be completed within a year and so it was quite a feat for the mid 1600s. It was under some major upkeep operations while we were there, which detracted some from the overall experience, but it was worth it.

In the peace-treaty of Westphalen, the protestant community got permit to build a church - with a lot of restrictions. As of materials, stone and tiles were banned, and as of time, the church needed to be built just within one year. The result is stunning. And even more stunning is it's survival for about 340 years through both WWI and WWII.

My parents and I stopped to visit this church in Jawor on our drive from Berlin to Krakow. It is a stunning sight. After the treaty that ended the 30 Years War, the Lutherans of the area were permitted to build three churches (two are still in existence). However, they were restricted by several requirements: The church was to be built from only wood, hay, and clay; it was to be built within one year; it was to have no steeples or church bells, and was to be outside the city walls.
It is a huge structure, with beautiful paintings and carving. It is quite amazing that the structure still stands today! There was another church built in Swidnica, which we also went to see, and which is also gorgeous. The third church was destroyed by lightning.
Not only is the church spectacular, the town of Jawor is enchanting. It was so good to get out of the bigger cities and see a smaller Polish town. The little town Square was quite pretty, and we had a lovely meal there in a restaurant on the square for pennies (pierogis and potato pancakes).

We came to this church short after noon, when church supposed to be open. At entrance we were told, that there is still mess, if we can come again one hour later. No problem, we can have lunch and come back at 1pm. BTW, no restaurant was open in whole city. We came back at 1 pm and on tbe church doors was sign "noon pause" 13-14. Ok little bit upset we have waited another hour, and when ve came back in 14:15 no sign here and door was locked and nobody around. So never more...
