Stara Kościelnica – St George’s Church

History

The church in Stara Kościelnica was built at the end of the 14th century. In 1818 the upper, wooden part of the tower collapsed, due to very strong wind. In 1913, the roof and roof truss were renovated and a porch was added to the south wall. Another roof renovation took place in 2008.

Architecture

Church of St. George was created as a orientated building on a rectangular plan, single-nave, with a high gable roof. Originally it had a brick and wooden tower from the west. The eastern wall is decorated with windows, blendes, friezes and a stepped and pinnacle gable. To the north side the sacristy, also decorated with blendes, was placed. On all the facades of the church, there are numerous putlog openings.
