The church is really worth to see, but you must be warned that the today's church differs from the original Vang stave church.The number of the genuine parts is rather small. The place is always crowded and when you plan to see the church's interior, you should be patient. You may get there by car, but you must take into... More

Great story behind the temple. Went there on a misty day so couldn't appreciate the views, but really enjoyed the experience .

One of the best attraction in Karpacz center, worth to see and spend some time. That is unique Norwegian church, amazing surroundings.

Great example of wooden architecture! Look for dragons above the entrances ;) There is a 10min explanations and then you can explore the place on your own a bit.

A really nice temple to visit. You won't find many similar objects here, in Poland. However, I'm not sure if it's worth its (small but yet) price.

Beautiful surrounds. The building has amazing history and well cared for. Definitely well worth a visit. Do visit the grave yard where a couple of famous Polish are buried. One a poet. Lots of visitors young and old. The climb up to the cathedral maybe daunting for those who are not accustomed to this but not to be put off.

The church is quite nice. Despite it is claimed to be build without a single nail, there are plenty of nails (hiwever still less than in typical Polish wooden building).
