The wooden Church of St. Wenceslas was built in 1788 on the site of a former wooden chapel dating back to 1730. A brick Empire-style church was built in 1822-1828. The interior furnishings include an Empire-style altar partially made of glass, dating back to 1864, and a large Baroque glass chandelier dating back to 1828. Both of these art works are evidence of the rich tradition of glassmaking in Harrachov.
