Wooden churches

The wooden churches of Southern Poland

Everyone who knows me also knows that I’m basically an evangelical atheist, with no time at all for religion in any form – I believe that only one rule is necessary … do no harm to anyone.

Nevertheless, I was pleased to read that another four of the wooden churches of Malopolskie have, with another four close-by and eight in Ukraine, been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.

These are just some of the closer wooden churches – to whet your appetite for a tour of Southern Poland.

Of course, not all the local churches are wooden – we have some stone beauties
