Kruszyny – St Nicholas Church

History

   The church of St. Nicholas was built in the first half of the fourteenth century. During the Polish-Teutonic Hunger War in 1414, it was destroyed by Polish-Lithuanian army.

Architecture

   The church is made of glacial erratic stones, the gables and the highest floor of the tower are made of bricks. It has a aisleless nave without an externally separated chancel and a square tower from the west. Two small, four-sided annexes housing the sacristy and the chapel were added from the north and east. Cross-rib vaults from the 14th century have survived in them, while the nave was topped with a timber ceiling.
