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.

The Church of Saints Peter and Paul the Apostles in Trutnowy

Erected in the 14th Century, the building survived into modern times in an almost unchanged form. Small renovations took place only in the 19th Century.

Made of brick, it features a distinctive ashlar wall base. Inside, above the presbytery entry, there is a stone cartouche with the Gdańsk coat of arms and an inscription reading "1687". The eastern wall is fitted with a plaque commemorating the flood of 1829, when the water level reached 1.5 m. Interiors are furnished with a noteworthy high altar, dating back to the 17th Century and the 18th-Century pulpit and baptismal font, as well as Baroque stalls, choir loft, and confessional.
