#3 of 11 in Historic Sites in Miskolc
The Wooden Church is a church in Miskolc, Hungary. It is built of carved wood. The present building was built in 1999 in place of the previous one that was destroyed by arson in 1997.The first church was consecrated on September 13, 1637, but both this date and the existence of the church are preserved only in tradition and there is no documentary evidence. The first document mentioning a church at this site dates back to 1698. This church was built of wood, but nothing else is known about it. The first church known by the name of 'Wooden Church' was built in 1724 and it stood until 1937.István Bató, a 19th-century citizen of Miskolc left a large sum to the church. As long as there are Protestants in Miskolc, this wooden church should be kept in good condition... should it burn down, it should be rebuilt of wood, he wrote in his will. Thus when the church became too old to maintain, the citizens decided that the new church should also be built of wood.The new church was designed by Bálint Szeghalmi. It was made entirely of wood brought from Transylvania, an area with long traditions of wood-carving, and the design also had Transylvanian elements. The result was a beautiful and unique church. The construction was finished by 1938.The church was set on fire by an arsonist on December 4, 1997. The city mourned its loss, and an almost identical church was built in its place in 1999.

  • Wooden church in Miskolc is built of carved wood. The existing building was gutted in 1999 on the site of the previous year, which was destroyed by fire in an arson attack in 1997 year. Date of birth of the first temple at this place is traditionally accepted as the year 1637, however there is no documentary evidence of this fact. The first document that mentions the Church, dates back to 1698. I advise you to visit the cemetery at the Church.

  • Miskolc is one of the truly special. Worth checking out! I've burnt several times, but each time they built again. Bato (19. Century lived at the request of a trader of Miskolc) everytime you just burn and kizárólagfából build again. Bato church cemetery surrounding the family.
