Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding The Leaning Church of St. Peter of Alcantara with additional information or photos.

Originally, this baroque church stood on a hill surrounded by Old Karviná town. The whole area is known for coal mining and the reason the town vanished during the last century. The only exceptions were the cemetery and church that has sunk by 121 feet (37 meters) and sits on a permanent tilt.
