St. Peter And Paul’s Orthodox Church

The parish was established probably already in the 13th century. The first parish priest was father Heynemann, acting in the years 1305 - 1321. In 1315 there was a wooden church consecrated, in the middle of the 14th century another church was built – standing until now.

It was smaller than today. The presbytery (currently fourth span) closed next to old one-storey sacristy, open by three arcades to the north church nave. This was originally a towerless basilica, referring in its concept to the “Mother of Churches” in Warmia – the Frombork Cathedral. The tower in the lower floor, with the adjacent sides of other chapels, built at the end of the 14th century, and its upper part remained wooden for long. The church was renewed several times after numerous fires in the years 1400, 1442 and 1497. The last reconstruction was completed in 1718. In the years 1870 - 1876 there was a thorough restauration, and in 1891 - 1896 a presbytery with sacristies and porches from the north and south were built.

The parish church is a late-Gothic building, made of brick and oriented. The temple trunk has a naved, hall form. It has been built on the shape of a rectangle, with a one-storey sacristy to the south. The naves are covered with vaults, upswing has been covered with a lierne vault and supported on eight pillars and four half-pillars at the walls. The pear-shaped profiles of the ribs drift across the vaults on to the stone brackets. The second south pillar is embedded with a face cantilever. On the outside, the church trunk has been embraced with some faulted escarpments. A flagellant cornice circulates around the church form. The Western gable of the main trunk had not been finished, yet covered by the tower which was built later. The Baroque eastern gable comes from before 1718
