Churches of Peace in Jawor and Świdnica (UNESCO/NHK)
The Churches of Peace in Jawor and Ś widnica, the largest timber-framed religious buildings in Europe, were built in the former Silesia in the mid-17th century, amid the religious strife that followed the Peace of Westphalia.

Churches of Peace in Jawor and Swidnica - UNESCO World Heritage Site
These two UNESCO World Heritage site Churches of Peace are fascinating buildings. The largest timber-framed religious buildings in Europe, they are Protestant churches in predominantly Catholic areas, and were built under very strict conditions. The buildings must be entirely wooden, no stones or bricks, no towers, more than a gunshot from the city walls, completed within a year and to a different design than existing churches. Very impressive that all of these conditions were satisfied, and that the churches have now stood for 350 years!

Świdnica (German: Schweidnitz; Czech: Svídnice) is a city in south-western Poland. It's quite small, but old and nice city. The Gothic Church of Ss. Stanislav and Vaclav from the 14th century has the highest tower in Silesia, standing 103 meters tall. The Evangelical Church of Peace, a UNESCO Heritage site, was built from 1656–57. The 16th-century town hall has been renovated numerous times and combines Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque architectural elements. The Baroque Church of St. Joseph and the Church of St. Christopher are from the same era. One remaining element of the former defensive works is the Chapel of St. Barbara.
Other notable destinations include the old town and the Stary Rynek square, Gola Dzierżoniowska Castle, Medieval town of Niemcza, Cistercian monastery at Henryków and the Wojsławice Arboretum.

Świdnica & Jawor
This is a short presentation of two Churches of peace in Poalnd. The two only such existing in the world.
If anyone thinks that seeing Russian wooden churches was enough - THIS will show how wrong one was!
(there is ONE mistake - One pic comes from the Leopoldine Hall in Wroclaw - sorry!)
No other country has such an outstanding example of half timbered constructions. Clay, straw (hay) and wood. And the time to build - ONLY 1 year. meaning 12 months...
