The slender, harmonious body of the cemetery church in Osiek, surrounded by 500-year-old oak trees (natural monuments) will leave you positively impressed.
The church dates back to the 16th century and was built probably in the years 1538–49. The tower was added later (in the 17th century), while the ground floor arcades (“podcienia”) were constructed in the 18th century. It is worth having a peek inside the church to see the preserved fragments of paintings on the ceiling and walls dating back to the 16th, 17th and 18th century. The Rococo pulpit shaped as Peter’s boat stands out among the opulent furnishings.
