Photographer's Note

Among the photos from Kezmarok on TE, there is no one with this interesting church.
It is listed in the UNESCO World Heritage List and dates back to the
time of religious oppresion of Protestants.
The first building of the church was built already in 1687. In 1717 it was rebuilt and given the present shape .
The church is sacred to the Holy Trinity. Protestants from the whole northern Europe financially supported the building. Swedish and Danish kings ordered whip-rounds in their countries to support the building of this church.
The construction was carried out without using a single nail. The clay plastered exterior walls are rather misguiding whereby only shingle roof suggests that it´s really a wooden jewel. The wooden church also called “articular church” offers 1500 places to sit on the ground floor and six choirs.

The wooden evangelical church was written into the List of the UNESCO World Heritage, within the scope of the enlistment of the Wooden Churches of the Slovak part of the Carpathian Mountain Area in 2008.
