Description

Collection of ten most important small feudal churches in the typical region of the Southern Slovakia. There are well-preserved mural paintings from the 14th and 15th cent. made by Italian vagant paintors of the Giotto school. Also the later influence of these authors as the example of the direct contact with the main cultural centre of the pink Gothic Period is very typical for these picturesque buildings.
