IN WOSKOWICE ŚLĄSKIE
The church of St. Hedwig of Silesia was built with red brick in the years 1896-97. The style of the structure is defined as Neo-Gothic as it taps into medieval, Gothic patterns and adds contemporary elements to them. From far away, the slender shape of the church reminds of old church building patterns, which were supposed not only to last for centuries but also to reach, literally, Heaven and to allow spiritual contact with the Creator.
According to sources, the church was designed by the architect by the name Maas and this may point to Joachim Maas. This well-known German architect designed, among others, the church of St. Charles Borromeo in Wrocław.
During your visit in Woskowice Górne, it is also worth finding the time to see other interesting monuments. An old manor can be found there, however its beautiful ornaments on the façade have not been preserved. It was most likely built in the 19th century as the residence of the von Frankenberg-Proschlitz family. In the second half of the 19th century, it was rebuilt and, in fact, destroyed, by depriving it of the elements characteristic for its style. The building was turned into apartments for workers. Currently, it is inhabited and can be visited only from the outside. Nevertheless, the manor remains an interesting witness to history.
