Sławsko – church of St Peter and Paul

History

   The church in Slawsko was built in the first half of the 15th century and for the first time it was mentioned in 1490. In the second half of the 16th century the tower was added to the church. In the 19th century the sacristy was demolished and the portal leading to it was bricked up. At the end of the 19th century the neo-gothic windows were rebuilt and the western elevation of the tower from the floor level.

Architecture

   It is a hall church consisting of a triangular ended corpus without a separate chancel and a tower that was added from the west. The corpus  is three-nave and three-bay. The tower is erected on a rectangular plan, has a facade segmented with blendes. Outside the church is surrounded by buttresses and covered with a gable roof. Inside is covered with four-arm stellar vault in the central nave and six-arm vault in the aisles. Interestingly, the east bay, although located within the polygon, was separated in the vault’s part as a rectangle with an analogous cover like the remaining bays in the central nave. This architectural solution has no analogies in Pomerania, and the nearest similar solutions can be found in Wielkopolska region.
