Opuszczony kościół ewangelicki w Goszczu: Zdjęcie archiwalne z pierwszej połowy XX wieku
Evangelical Church in the first half of the twentieth century

This is one of the oldest existing in Poland abandoned the Evangelical churcheswas completed in 1749, the desire of the present king of Prussia, Frederick II, however, the history of worship in this place reaches up to 1594.

The first Church, the Protestant Church came here, it was the chapel-the tomb of the family Borschnitzów built in 1594, in which at the same time you can send mass. It was destroyed when possession fell into the hands of a Catholic family background Dohnów.

Later, in the years 1633 - 1637 Protestant services were sent to neighbouring parish Church. When these lands came under the rule of Reichenbachów, worship services were held first in one of the Palace halls. In 1741 the king of Prussia Frederick II officially allowed to conduct Protestant worship services and began to build the Church that we can see in the photo.

The building project was prepared by Johann Boumann. The construction of the temple began in 1743, six years later, in 1749, began worship in it. Before the war the Church was repaired, but after 1945 no one used. Until the late nineteenth century was here services are held in German and Polish.

In the Church you can find two sarcophagi: the first (from the late Baroque), in which lay hrabini Frederica Charlotte von Schönaich-Carolath and who died in 1741 and the second (the Rococo era), which was Heinrich Leopold von Reichenbacha, died in 1775.

I should add that this Church is an integral part of the Palace family Reichenbachów and just as he constantly destroyed and crumbling. Currently, the Church is empty.

My travels.

As you may have noticed, nothing on this site has been added for some time. But no, I did not leave this project, I'm just busy with others. Currently I am building a website called Fshoq!, where I'm writing a travel blog, where you can find both my new and those old adventures. So if you are waiting for more of my texts or pictures, this is the place I think it is worth looking into. After I will make Fshoq! site more popular, I'm going to get back to Into the Shadows, as I'm having more and more explorations of abandoned places to describe. Meanwhile, see you later!
