To the southeast of the capital of the Lower Silesian Voivodeship – Wroclaw, you will find the ancient district town of Swidnica. The center of town is the Market Square with the town hall. Among the most important other monuments of the city is the Church of Peace, which is the largest wooden Baroque church in Europe. Thanks to that, it is registered in UNESCO.

Beautiful church in Swidnica

The church is very nice, it can be bypassed from all sides, but thanks to the mature trees and cemetery tombstones, it is quite difficult to take photos.

In addition to the church, there are several other interesting buildings in the same architectural style. The bell tower is probably the most distinctive of them.
