Church of SS Peter and Paul in Pągów

Add to the planner

The first mention of the church in Pągów dates back to 1300, but the original church did not survive. In 1600, a wooden church was built there. It was dismantled around the mid-19th century and the current Gothic Revival brick church with a ground floor made of stone was built by the local Protestant community on the site. The 17th-century wooden bell tower tapered upward and had a tent-like crown that was characteristic of Orthodox sacred architecture; in later years, the roof was replaced with an octagonal one. The tower houses a bell founded in 1738 by the Breslau bellfounder Kaspar Koeberg. The church was Protestant until 1945.

Inside the church, you can see a Baroque altar from the turn of the 17th and 18th century, with a sculpture of Christ Crucified as the centrepiece, and also a number of statues of angels. Other Baroque elements include the pulpit with rich floral ornaments, the pipe organ, the stalls, and the confessional. On the façade, you can see 18th-century marble tombstones with cartouches.
