Photographer's Note

Today I took a shot of a wooden church of St. Nicolas which stood originally in another country - Slovakia. Being in a horrible state it was sold to my town to be restored.
St. Nicholas’s Church in Jirásek’s Gardens is an interesting example of wooden vernacular architecture. Originally, the church was built in 1502 - 1510 in the Habura town near Mezilaborce in Eastern Slovakia. In 1740, it was sold to Malá Polana, where it was converted to a Greek- Catholic Church of St. Nicholas-the Wondermaker. In 1935, the church was purchased for Hradec Králové thanks to the efforts of Mayor Josef V. B. Pilnáček. It was renovated expensively and situated into Jirásek’s Gardens. The church is surrounded by the authentic fence. In the church interiors your attention will be drawn to a well-preserved iconostas, twelve arm chandelier and other items of indoor decoration.
