INSURED SHIPMENT / OWN COLLECTION

The Church of Peace in Świdnica was erected on a cross plan, in a half-timbered technique, based on a wooden skeleton filled with clay and straw. The church is owned by the Evangelical-Augsburg parish in Świdnica. It was created as a result of religious conflicts in 17th-century Europe, and became a symbol of reconciliation: in 1989, Prime Minister Tadeusz Mazowiecki and German Chancellor Helmut Kohl, on their way to Krzyżowa, prayed for peace here. In 2014, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Polish Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz took part in an ecumenical prayer for peace.

In 2011, the Swedish royal couple Charles XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia visited the Church of Peace, and in September 2016 representatives of Christian churches, Judaism, Islam and Buddhism, together with the 14th Dalai Lama, jointly signed the Appeal for Peace. In 2001

The Church of Peace in Świdnica was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, and in 2017 it was included in the Polish elite list of Historical Monuments. Along with the surrounding buildings, cemetery and greenery, it is the most beautiful, the only so well-preserved complex of Lutheran architecture in Silesia.
