Wooden Churches in Slovakia

Specific samples of sacred architecture in Slovakia are the wooden churches. Their folk builders expressed the perfect harmony of the human soul with nature and the effort to disengage from earthly worries.

Wooden churches of the Slovak part of Carpathian Mountain Area, which were added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2008, possess an extraordinary worldwide value. Those are the Roman Catholic churches in Hervartov and Tvrdošín, Evangelical articular churches in Hronsek, Kežmarok and Leštiny, and churches of Eastern rite in Bodružal, Ladomirová and Ruská Bystrá.
