Photographer's Note

Unusual St. Laurentius church in Nachod.
First of all, it is built in the middle of the main square, where the town hall is usually situated.
Secondly, it has unusual onion-shaped towers and a wooden superstructure.

The first mention of the church comes from 1310, originally built as a Gothic church, but the building gained its current appearance in the second half of the 16th century, after reconstruction in the Baroque style. Initially, it had only one tower, the other was built in the 16th century. The towers are named Adam and Eve, they are covered with wooden shingles.
A bell hangs in each of these towers, the larger one weighs 3 tons.
Another photo in WS. It is not allowed to take photos in the church.
