The Chapel (PL)

This place, often just called ‘The Chapel’, had for long been a place I wanted to visit. We wasn’t sure if we would be able to access the place. We had heard rumors that the entry point was bricked. But luckily for us there were no problems. The decay has come a long way but it was still possible to see hints of former glory in the painted ceilings in red and blue. The strangest thing about the place is that it looks much smaller on the outside than inside.

This once was protestant temple designed by Carl Gotthard Langhans and built in 1796-1797. He was also the architect of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. Back then the church had seats for 400 people and its own small graveyard outside. Originally the church stood on German ground and the last service was held in 1945. After the second world war the land was given back to Poland but since the people were mostly catholics they didn’t want to use an old German protestant church. And the people was poor so they raided the graveyard and took any values left. For a time period the building was used to held sheep warm, but it never retained back as a holy place. Expect a holy place for urbexers I guess. The ruin falls apart more and more each year so one day it will be gone for good.
