It was a huge WOOOW! Modest from the outside, beautiful, rich inside. Easy to get to by car. In 1618 started a war that lasted for 30 years. After the treaty was signed, catholics were much stronger at this area co protestants could build only 3 churches. But what churches! According to legends protestants could build churches but with delicate materials - to be destroyed sooner of later. They were built with sand, wood, with not many nails. It was planned that they would be in debris soon. As it was built thanks to the treaty after war it was named Church of Peace. There were tree wooden churches in 3 different cities. A church in the first city collapsed. Workers were smarter and more experienced so a church built in the second city was even bigger and more solid. The third one was built in Swidnica. It is the most solid, the biggest one. It is the biggest wooden church in Europe (7500 people can be inside- co many because it has balconies), At the nearby cementary granddad of Bismarck is buried. Absolutely magnificent building - visit it!
