Stunnning wooden XVth century UNESCO church in Grywałd, Poland | IN MY LENS


Turning off the road on the way from Zakopane to Szczawnica I did not actually expect that church that the church I was planning to see is going to be so beautiful. St. Martin church in Grywałd is just gorgeous with its colorful interior. It was built in the mid-fifteenth century and in the seventeenth century the interior has been entirely covered with polychromy.

The church is part of a group listed on Polish UNESCO list, though itselt it's not on the list (and I don't really know why).
