Largest wooden Gothic church in Europe

Wooden Church of Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Haczów

This temple is distinguished by the unusual beauty of its wooden Gothic architecture, and its creators aimed to imitate the slender masonry buildings. The church in Haczów is tall, with a characteristic narrow and long nave and a tower over the vestibule with a pyramidal cross-section. Around the building, shelters were made, called Soboty, for worshippers coming from afar to spend the night. Inside, there are wooden columns and ornaments, already in Baroque and Rococo style, including elaborate side altars. The walls and ceiling are covered with figural and geometric polychromes. The church was built in the 15th century and remains the largest wooden Gothic church in Europe.
