Dúbravica – St Sophia’s Church

History

The church was built in the fifteenth century and at the beginning of the sixteenth century, the interior of the temple was decorated with a new altar. In the eighteenth century, a baroque reconstruction took place, which affected mainly the church tower. In 1997 it was renovated.

Architecture

The church was created as a small single-nave building with a polygonal chancel and a small, octagonal tower located on the north side of the nave. The windows have been preserved with original tracery, on the south side there is also a gothic portal, currently walled up. Inside there is a small chapel in the ground floor of the tower, while the presbytery is topped with a rib vault. Church presents a good example of rural sacred architecture in the late gothic period.
