Village of Sierakowice/Serakowice looks more like a small town. It is a trade and service center for the larger area around it.
An interesting altar, built for the open-air Mass during Pope John Paul II visit to Pelpin in 1999, was moved to the downtown Sierakowice and is displayed in a special garden, which will become a park with the monument to the Pope in the future.
