Steklno – St Christopher’s Church

History

   The church was erected at the beginning of the 16th century, and the tower was added at the end of the 16th century. In 1945 the church was destroyed and fell into ruin, only in the years 1994-1998 was rebuilt.

Architecture

   The church was built of erratic boulders supplemented with bricks in the upper parts. The latter are used for corners, window and portal jambs, gables and blendes. The temple obtained a late Gothic, simple form of a aisleless structure (single-space, without a separate chancel), erected on a rectangular plan. From the west, a stone tower built on a square plan was added, slightly narrower than the nave of the church, but with massive dimensions.
