If you want to feel young again, thats the place to go hundreds of young student about having a giggle and talkfest. There is an entrance fee to get inside but the visitors guide outside was good enough for me.

Didn't expect to see a wooden-framed 'Viking' church! Great views of the surrounding mountains and fresh air!

This place is not wheelchair accessible, as short, but steep steps lead to the entrance. There’s a small garden in front and cemetery in the back. This is accessible. Steep hill leads to the church.

Lovely little stave church brought from parish of Vang in Norway. The entrance to the building is not free, but the fee for the entry covers a recorded explanation of the history of the church. It's worth having a stroll around the building and through...More

From what I had experienced, there are Buses running as I had noticed while 'fast tracking' down the winding and medium sized bitumen road leading to Karpacz from Wang with my mountain bike. What fun and exhilaration... More
