Wooden Articular Evangelical Church Leštiny

The Articular Evangelical church is located in Leštiny village in Orava and it was registered in the UNESCO list in 2008. The church was built during 1688-1689 and the original construction was lacking a tower and bells. To build this church, they used spruce wood from the surrounding forests. A dominant feature of the church is its shingle roof. The interior is decorated with a Baroque altar with woodcarvings, wall-flower paintings from the 17th century and a richly decorated pulpit from the early 18th century. Masses are still being held in this church.
