Photographer's Note

Wooden church. St. Michael is the oldest sacral building in Katowice. The Church dates from 1510 year and the free-standing wooden tower from the seventeenth century. The whole is surrounded by a wooden fence. This is one of the few remaining examples of Upper Silesia, wooden religious architecture.

The church was moved in 1938 from Syrynia and set the highest point in Kosciuszko Park in Katowice as the first object of the emerging open-air museum, which ultimately was not. The Church is a nave, chancel with a separate, locked straight wall.

In the interior, you can admire body of seventeenth-century wooden pulpit, a wooden, late-Gothic sculpture of Madonna and Child, from the early sixteenth century, moved from Dębieńska near Rybnik.

I made this picture against the "hidden sun" and unfortunately the sky is too white.
