Chobienia – St Peter and Paul church

History

The church of St. Peter and Paul was mentioned for the first time in 1446. It was probably built at the turn of the 14th and 15th centuries. The church was rebuilt in the years 1584-1587 with the participation of Georg von Kottwitz younger. In 1616 and in 1722, the building burnt down. The tower was rebuilt in 1620, and the whole church again in 1724. In the years 1725-1727, new equipment was also made at the expense of officials from the imperial salt factories.

Architecture

The church is a one-nave, orientated building with a narrower, three-side ended chancel. A sacristy, two chapels and a massive tower with a rectangular projection, turning into a octagon, adjoin the corpus of the temple. The nave is buttressed and topped with a gable roof. The tower is covered with a pyramidal helmet. Above the nave is a flat ceiling, above the chancel barrel vault. Inside, there is an antique baptismal font from 1587 and tombstones from the 16th century. On the outer walls of the temple are embedded epitaphs and tombstones from the late sixteenth century.
