The Wooden Architecture Route [13] - Sekowa

It seems to be that it is our last stop on the Wooden Architecture Route:) At the end we would like to show you the most impressive church - in Sekowa.
The temple was built in the 16th century and it is entered onto the UNESCO World Heritage List.
More information in the last photo.

An amazing steep roof on this church. Is it to shed snow?

AB said...

I love these roofs. That of the church are well captured here.

That interior is fabulous!

I just realized something because of the roofs of these churches. Does it rain or snow often there? The steep slope is perfect for rainy or snowy weather.

I really like wooden architecture but in Bielsko we have only three or four examples...
Greetings from Podbeskidzie!

@That is the chicken - it is probably that the roof was built in this shape because of the snow and rain:)
@Hilda - rain is often (especially in spring) in our climate, and snow is there almost all winter:)
