Catholic Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary



The Filial Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is a typical example of rural wooden ecclesiastical architecture of Greater Poland.


The Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary was erected in 1746. It was renovated in the years 1974-1975.


The village of Myślniew is located to the south-east of Ostrzeszów. The church is oriented towards the east. It has one nave (with no aisles). The building has a wooden log structure. The exterior walls are covered with weatherboards. The nave is adjoined by a small chancel, terminating in a semi-hexagon, on the east side and a tower, tapering towards the top, with a porch at the ground floor level, on the west side. The tower has a post-and-beam structure and is covered with a Baroque roof made of sheet metal, topped with a double lantern and a cross. The building is complemented by a quadrangular sacristy adjoining the chancel on the north side and a porch adjoining the nave, both covered with three-pitched roofs. The two-ridge roof, having wide eaves, is covered with eternit and sheet metal. It is surmounted by a steeple with a lantern topped by a spire and a cross. Inside, there is a false barrel vault, slightly flattened in the chancel. The church fittings include a Late Baroque main altar, side altars, and pulpit. The rood beam is adorned with a Crucifixion Group with the date of the construction of the church: “1746”. The music gallery, enclosed with a balustrade, is supported by two wooden posts. The graveyard is covered with trees.

The church can only be visited from the outside.
