Description

In the village of Krajné Čierno, there is an ancient wooden church consecrated to St. Basil the Great - one of the most important Eastern saints. The wooden church was built in the village in the 18th century and is built on a stone foundation.

By its architecture, Tserkva (ie church) is one of the Byzantine sacral buildings where the Eastern Ceremony and the Church Liturgy of John of the Golden Mouth is performed. It is a three-part, three-room and three-tower church with three crosses. At the top of each tower is a three-armed cross.

The interior features several rare icons, some of which date back to the 17th century. The iconostasis (National cultural monument) in the temple has four-row architecture on four floors. In addition, there is an interesting wardrobe made in Gothic style.

Wooden tserkva in Krajni Čierny is one of the youngest wooden churches in the Svidník region. The wooden temple in Extreme Black was one of the hundred most endangered monuments in the world, thanks to which it was possible to obtain sufficient funds for the necessary repair of the temple.

Church of St. Basil the Great belongs to the administration of the Greek Catholic parish office in Ladomirová. If you are interested in viewing the interior of the church, it is necessary to report in advance.
