Church of St. Michael the Archangel (Slovakia)

Scale: 1:120
Author: Mgr. Juraj Gonšor
Publisher: SVAP

I am adding another church, a few words about the original:

e16045656.jpg

Dražovský kostolík (officially the Church of St. Michael the Archangel) is one of the oldest churches in Slovakia, dating from the 11th century, located at Dražovce (now part of Nitra). It is a typical early Romanesque architecture single nave building with thick enclosure walls and small roundish apse. It is no longer used. Research from 1947 and 1948 discovered 55 graves around the church.

Model built without modifications, I just added grass and a few figures of sheep ... a few photos:

It's sad it's no longer used, even if just had a Ark with the Sacrament inside, so people could pray in it. It truly is a beautiful building, and to have survived all the history that happened around it is a blessing. ;)

At present, the church is not used regularly, the Holy Mass is celebrated here every year on September 29, the feast day of St. Archangel Michael.
Just for the sake of interest, this interesting church was depicted on a Slovak 100 crown banknote issued in 1941 and 50 crowns from 1993. ;)

If Mass is still held there, even yearly, that means the church is still consecrated Holy Ground! Very cool! Outposts against evil! :)
