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

Scale : 1:100

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:

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! ;):)

Beautiful!! I wish we had chapels like this everywhere here in the U.S.. I have to check with the Town Zoning to see if I could put up such a think. It couldn't be a building, but there must be a bylaw that allows you to express your faith?

Thank you, the chapels have been built here mainly in the past, and there are good people who repair these monuments. ;)

Chapel of St. Cross, called Pustyňa (Starý Bohumín-Czech republic)

Scale : 1:87
Author : Tomáš Hrebík
Source : Vystřihovánky vTOM, free model

The chapel earned the popular name Pustyňa because of the hermitage, which grew up in 1756 in its immediate vicinity. It was built and inhabited by two Hermit hermits - brother Antonín and brother Felix from III. of the Order of St. Francis of Assisi. However, the order, which the two men entered, was abolished on the basis of an imperial decree in 1782, and with it all hermitages. The Bohumín one disappeared in the second half of the 19th century. - The chapel is listed. - The chapel and the land below it belong to the town of Bohumín, which had it repaired in 2012.

These are all so pittoresque! I have some smaller chapels nearby and am thinking of putting them on my todo list. The picture of the real thing makes your models even more attractive and helps tremendously to appreciate what you are doing. I love it! :)

Your builds of these chapels are AMAZING! I like how the roofs look like they are layered.

Chapel of St. Ján Nepomucký (Nezbudská Lúčka - Slovakia)

Scale : 1:87
Author : Michal Vršanský
Source : Vystřihovánky vTOM, free model

The exact date when the Chapel of St. Ján Nepomucký, built on a hill above Nezbudská Lúčka, is perhaps forever shrouded in mystery. However, it is believed that its origins date back to the 19th century, when rafting spread on the Váh River. What is known is that it was built by rafters to protect them from water accidents. It is said that it was in that part of Váh, above which the chapel stands today, various accidents often occurred. The rafters dedicated the chapel to their patron St. Ján Nepomucký. In 2014, with the help of good people, it was repaired. Photo of the real building:
