About
The articular evangelical church located in the village of Lestiny in Orava was entered into the UNESCO list in 2008. The church was built between 1688 - 1689 and the original building was without a tower and bells. It stands in the privacy of the slope, but this slope was leveled by a stone base. Spruce wood from the surrounding forests was used for construction, the dominant feature of the building is shingle roof. Church tour - guide p. Zuzana Kovalcikova - tel. 0907 804 099

A unique wooden church, but the surroundings, not much parking, and the need to call in advance are significant minuses

I would rate it 3 1/2 if I could. The fact that it looks great from the outside, that it is recognised by UNESCO/unique, and that there’s a quiet cemetery pretty much all around make for a nice atmosphere. BUT the graves are not all in a great condition, you need to call in advance for even getting in, and a landfill about 70 metera further are minuses you should be aware about. I recommend walking up the nearby hill after - a nice little tourism with a view of the village in just a few minutes. Walk the cemeteries too, pretty lizards and friendly cats around.
