Description

In the town of Spišská Nová Ves, there is a charming historic building of the Evangelical Church on the Town Hall Square. The church was built between 1790 - 1796 in the Classicist style and it is so-called tolerance type of evangelical church.

The ground plan of the church has the shape of a cross and the magnificent exterior architecture will enchant every passer-by. The hall space is full of grace, spirituality and artistically valuable works. The entrance to the church opens a magnificent view of the main pillared altar with a beautiful altarpiece of Christ praying on the Mount of Olives by Danish painter Johann Jakob Stunder.   The Evangelical Church in Spišská Nová Ves can be proud of the oldest surviving library in Spiš, located on the choir. Rare old ties and the smell of ancient times create an unrepeatable atmosphere. In the interior of the church you can also admire the restored original sculptures of four evangelists - St. John, St. Luke, St. Mark and St. Matthew.

The Evangelical Church is also known for its excellent acoustics and is therefore often the center of concerts and festivals of classical and organ music. The church is a national cultural monument owned and administered by the Church and Evangelical Church of Augsburg Confession in Slovakia, Spišská Nová Ves. The church still fully serves its purpose.
