Attractions : The Wooden Church. The wooden church of the village is said to be the world’s largest – built in the mid-19th century to hold 3000 seats or take 5000 to standing. Apparently the pastor thought that it ought to be capable of accommodating half the population at any one time. It now appears inordinately large for the village but, its proportions being immensely pleasing, it’s an object of great beauty.
