The most common structures of historic churches located in Polish countryside or in small towns are the brick masonry buildings. However, one can also find architecturally and structurally interesting objects in which the basic constructional material is wood. There are two main types of structural solutions applied: half-timbered buildings and buildings made completely of wood. Many of these buildings were created even several hundred years ago. Most of them are registered in the national monuments registry and each of them has undergone various repairs or refurbishments. The paper presents selected typical small timber churches and also an example of evaluation of the technical condition with static and strength analysis of a small countryside log wooden church.
