St. Peter's church

Lieto, Finland

The Lieto Church was built probably in the end of 15th century. The earliest record of Lieto parish dates back to the year 1331, when local vicar Pietari (Peter) was a witness in tax trial between Turku bishop and Häme (Tavastia) people. The stone church represents simple Finnish church architecture. The belfry was added in 1766 and the Neo-Gothic styled apse in 1902.

Really beautiful church. The altar nicely in the middle of the church. It is worth going to the events.

It was a relaxing yoga of silence. When lying on the floor, the ceiling paintings and vaults of the church are poorly visible. It's good that the church space can be used in different ways for quieting down.

There is enough parking space in and around the yard. Renovated inside, causes confusion because there are no benches, but chairs that form a circle, especially the odd ones that seek the so-called places in the back seat suddenly find themselves next to the pulpit. You will get to the middle of the events and a surprisingly positive surprise.

Current seating arrangement is a bit unorthodox..

Trencín Castle

Trenčín Castle is relatively large renovated castle, towering on a steep limestone cliff directly above the city of Trenčín. It is a dominant feature not only of Trenčín, but also of the entire Považie region. The castle is a national monument.

History of the castle cliff dates back to the Roman Empire, what is proved by the inscription on the castle cliff proclaiming the victory of Roman legion against Germans in the year 179.

Today’s castle was probably built on the hill-fort. The first proven building on the hill was the Great Moravian rotunda from the 9th century and later there was a stone residential tower, which served to protect the Kingdom of Hungary and the western border. In the late 13th century the castle became a property of Palatine Matúš Csák, who became Mr. of Váh and Tatras.

Matúš Csák of Trenčín built a tower, still known as Matthew’s, which is a dominant determinant of the whole building.
