Geocache Description:


Tvrdošín - Gotický drevený kostol / Gotic wooden church
Kostol

Najstaršia stavebná historická pamiatka, ktorá stojí na území mesta Tvrdošín, je drevený kostolík z polovice 15. storocia.

Drevený kostolík s neskorogotickými stavebnými prvkami zaradujú odborníci do 2. polovice 15. storocia, hoci prvá písomná zmienka o existencii fary a teda aj farnosti v Tvrdošíne je z roku 1395. To, co máte možnost vidiet dnes, je zreštaurovaná renesancná úprava kostolíka z polovice 17. storocia, presnejšie z rokov 1650 a 1653 - 1654, co je vyznacené na tráme vítazného oblúka zo strany svätyne: HOC TQTUM OPUS PICTUM ERECTUM EST ANNO DQHINI 1653 ET 54. Terajší oltár je barokový, z 2. polovice 17. až zaciatku 18. storocia, ktorý nahradil omnoho starší a menší gotický oltár. Jeho fragmenty sa nachádzajú v Oravskej galérii v Dolnom Kubíne a v Múzeu krásnych umení v Budapešti, kde je aj gotický oltárny obraz Oplakávania Krista.
V rokoch 1986 - 1993 prebehli rozsiahle opravy a rekonštrukcia niektorých castí stavby, sústredenie po desatrocia reštaurovaných castí mobiliáru a opätovné poskladanie celej vnútornej výzdoby, úprava terénu v najbližšom i vzdialenejšom okolí, opravy s výmenou krytiny a zakonzervovaním zvonice, bášt a oplotenia cintorína i štýlové architektonické zladenie v období poslednej rekonštrukcie postaveného Domu smútku. Výsledkom je historicky cenný, ale súcasne aj esteticky pôsobivý urbanistický celok.

Kostol nájdete otvorený v júli a auguste od 10:00 do 16:00. V inom case je možné dohodnút návštevu telefonicky. Areál a cache sú prístupne nepretržite.

The wooden church built in the middle of the 15th century is the oldest historic architectural monument in Tvrdošín.

Today, the church is restored in the Renaissance style from 1650 and 1653 - 1654 which is engraved in the triumphal arch on the side of the chancel. The Baroque altar from the turn of 17th and 18th centuries with its rich sculptural decoration without colours enables us to admire the beauty of pure lime tree wood and wood-carving the way its creators did just after finishing it.
In 1986 - 1993, extensive repairs and restoration of some parts of the building were done: long-restored historic furniture was placed inside, reinstallation of the whole internal decoration, terraine adjustments, exchange of roofing, preservation of belfry, bastions and cemetery fence. The church together with a stylish morgue built only recently create a unified and impressive architectural unit.

Church is opened in july and august from 10:00 till 16:00. You can arrange a visit by phone at different time. Church area and cache are accessible always.
