Bukowina Tatrzanska Things to Do: 7 reviews and 28 photos
Bukowina Tatrzanska has two churches: a wooden one dedicated to the Holiest Heart of Jesus and consecrated in 1887 and a modern one, much bigger and rising high but not so charming as the little one. But the village congregation had grown so much that they could not possibly remain in the smaller building.
The old church was designed and built by one pious local man, Jedrzej Kramarz, who also carved the statues for the main altar which can now be seen by the entrance to the old church. The wooden building is still used for concerts and smaller gatherings. In front of it stands the carved statue of a saint.
The two churches stand side by side and share the cemetery, which commands a beautiful view of the hill right across the valley.
Directions: In the main street, about two kilometres (2 bus stops) down from the roundabout at the top, aka Klin.
