Very nice church with an interesting interior. There are several legends related to this church, which you can read on the information board in front of the church and ... in the photo I attached. We got there by trail from Palenica - very nice walk.

That is an amazing old wooden church. If you are there in the area there is no reason not to visit that. You need some luck not to be in a crowd of a tourist group and have some time to look at all that inside paintings, sculptures in peace and quiet. Enjoy!

This Gothic-style 16th century wooden church is a UNESCO World Heritage site and features some really beautiful polychromy on its interior walls. This is perhaps the finest historical wooden church, along with the Church of John the Baptist in Orawka, in the immediate region and one of the finest of the many charming wooden churches that can be found in south/southeastern Poland as well as across the border in Slovakia. If possible, best visited when there are traditional festivities going on such as 'the blessing of the easter baskets' (Święconka) on Holy Saturday

On our way back to Zakopane after rafting the lorry made a stop for us to visit Archangel Michael’s Church. -A UNESCO heritage monument. Located in Dębno, the church dates back to the middle of the 15th century, but the first church at this place was built the 13th. The interior uniquely combines Gothic art and highland folk tradition. It was built using the horizontal log technique, common in eastern and northern Europe since the Middle-Ages and is a splendid testimony of Polish culture. It was built of larch wood, and its joinery employs splines but no nails. LEGEND: The local legend has it that the church was built by highland robbers, to whom St, Michael Archangel revealed himself on the oak tree. Cameras are prohibited but I managed to get one quick shot of the interior without being noticed.
