Wooden Articular Church

Local nameEvanjelický kostol Najsvätejšej Trojice
LocationKežmarok, Slovakia

The Wooden articular church in Kežmarok is a wooden church in Kežmarok, Slovakia. The local Lutherans built it during a period of religious persecution, when they were allowed to erect only wooden churches. That is why even nails were made exclusively of wood. The construction was financially supported by Protestants from various countries, including Sweden and Denmark.The only stone part of the church is its sacristy, originally built in 1593 as a pub outside the city walls.
