Wooden articular church

Church

Visit the wooden articular church breathing history, which is interesting not only for its appearance but also for its rare paintings, altar or pulpit.

On the site of the current wooden articular church of St. Michala in Istebno originally stood a small chapel dating from 1686. In 1730, the chapel was enlarged. A tower was added and crypts were made under the church, which took on its current form and gave it a floor plan of a Greek cross. In its interior there are rare paintings, a baroque altar with a picture of St. Trinity, a Florentine-style pulpit with statues of evangelists. The peculiarity of the church is the wooden chalice, which is supposed to recall the old times, when the Orava people were poor but rich in spirit.
