St. Michael the Archangel Church


Above the wooden Greek-Catholic temple in the village of Ladomirová, the protective hand of St. Michael the Archangel is tending, to whom the temple is dedicated. In the year 1742, they built not just the church itself, but also a belfry, from which three mighty bells clang. The temple was built without using a single nail and belongs to the architecturally most valuable and most representative temples of the Eastern rite in Slovakia.

St. Michael the Archangel Church 

The temple was built in the year 1742 without using a single nail.

The so-called "babinec", i.e. the place where once women gathered, because they did not have the right to be staying in the nave, forms a kind of vestibule of the temple. The visitor is first attracted by the sight of three decorated temple towers. The highest of them is located just above the "babinec".Inside the temple, we may find a beautiful, artistically valuable Baroque iconostasis and the altar coming from the 18th century, which, however, was marked by the unpleasant events of modern history of mankind.

St. Michael the Archangel Church

In the autumn of 1944, when a major tank battle of the Carpathian-Dukla operation was fought by Ladomirová, in which the village was almost completely destroyed and re-built after the liberation. Part of the icons from the St. Michael the Archangel Church was destroyed in World War II.
