Gothic, Baroque, half-timbered houses, built of wood, brick, or filled with clay or plastered – only Pomerania offers such a diversity of religious buildings. The rich interior decor, the wall paintings and incredible stained glass windows, give the finishing touch to the structures.

St. Barbara’s Church in Orłowo

Orłowo is a typical marshland village situated south from Nowy Dwór Gdański, incorporated as early as the 14th Century.

Beside arcade houses and several examples of wooden regional buildings, there is a nice little Gothic house erected in 1350 with a low tower made of wood, dating back to the 18th century. The interiors of the temple have preserved a modest historic furnishing. An interesting element of the church are stones with dates and inscriptions, built into its foundations. In front of the church visitors can take a look at several tombstones from the 18th and 19th Centuries.
