Kościół Święta Heleny

THE ABANDONED CHURCH IN POLAND


The ‘Kościół Święta Heleny’ or ‘Church of Saint Helena’ is a historic Catholic church located in the abandoned Polish ghost village Wróblin Głogowski.

Wróblin was located close to the copper smelter ‘Huta Miedzi Głogów’. This factory produces quality cathode copper, lead,selenium and precious metals such as silver and gold. In particular the pollution of the natural environment by the factory, forced the inhabitants of the village to leave. Only one farm and the church are still there today. All the other buildings were eventually demolished years ago.

The church belonged to the nearby Corpus Christi parish in Brzeg Głogowski. It is a classical brick building built in 1810. In 1964, the church was renovated by the inhabitants of Wróblin, which is remembered by a tablet inside.

The church is unused and in a bad state at the present time. But the beautiful paintings have been preserved on the walls and ceiling.

Not only the village turned into a wilderness, but it also officially ceased to exist. Meanwhile Wróblin is located within the administrative borders of Głogów and is inhabited by only one family. However there are no future plans for the ‘Kościół Święta Heleny’ church. For more abandoned churches, follow this link.
