You choose unesco WHS tag - Poland

And this one is a card from Poland , send by Bodexs, who has send me some nice UNESCO cards before. It shows one of the Wooden Churches of Southern Little Poland.



The wooden churches of southern Little Poland represent outstanding examples of the different aspects of medieval church-building traditions in Roman Catholic culture. Built using the horizontal log technique, common in eastern and northern Europe since the Middle Ages, these churches were sponsored by noble families and became status symbols. They offered an alternative to the stone structures erected in urban centres.
