Wooden churches of Eastern Slovakia

V98983SR4EPYS4M7bab7CNYPI received this card as a surprise from Martina from Slovakia. And after I received it, I learned (the hard way) that the Slovak name of Slovakia is Slovenska, which is just so confusing! 😀

Anyway… The card pictures the wooden churches of Eastern Slovakia, 3 of which are on UNESCO’s Word Heritage list (inscribed under the name Carpathian Wooden Churches – a total of nine wooden religious buildings constructed between the 16th and 18th centuries in eight different locations in Slovakia). On my card you could see the pictures of the churches in Hervartov (the picture with the flag), Bodružal (upper left corner) and Ladomirová (the one below it). The church at Hervartov is Roman Catholic, and the other two churches are Greek Catholic.
