Chapel of the Virgin Mary in Košolná (Slovakia)

I did not find out much about this chapel, only that it is located on the edge of the village, according to the inscription on the chapel, it was probably built in 1824. Photo of the real building:

My edits:

I added a cross and made a pad. I originally planned a smaller mat, but when I saw the 2 trees in front of the chapel, I really liked it, so I enlarged it a bit to fit it there. Although they covered the chapel quite a bit, it looks quite nice. A few photos:

The bell tower in Marček (Slovakia)
village Svederník, local part Marček

The bell tower is built in the oldest part of Marček and together with the wooden houses it creates an original locality of folk architecture. The building is brick from the beginning of the 19th century with a pyramidal roof. At the corner was a niche with a wooden statue of St. Florián - the patron saint of firefighters from the 18th century, which was stolen after 1989. Photo of the real building:

My edits:
I cut the windows, added the bell, made a simple pad. A few photos:

I think I have found out the secret behind your builds: The base! ;) The model looks so much more natural with all the grass, trees and soil around it. It adds life to it and makes the final result even more appealing. Great job, Mike! :)

That's why I make models with a pad, it's more work with it, but it looks much better ;)

The layering of the roof is superb and brings it very close to the real thing. You could start making miniature props for filming! ;):)

Thank you, I like these buildings and also their history, if I find something about the building on the Internet, I will like to write it in the description ... as in the next chapel ;)

Chapel on Štrčková (Velké Karlovice-Czech republic)

The chapel was built in 1915 by Petr Bukovjan as a thank you for surviving the First World War. In 1999 it was repaired by the Sedlák brothers from Jezerný. The chapel has an unusual oval floor plan. There is a statuette of the Virgin Mary in the display case. On the left side of the chapel is a wooden cross. Photo of the real building:
