Old Church




Did you know?

The first church in Lednické Rovne was built in 1640 by the feudal landowner of the Lednica manor, Zuzana Lórantffy, George I Rákóczi's wife. Under the nave of the church there was a tomb. In 1751, the entire church was rebuilt by order of Jozef Matyašovský. During the reconstruction, the original wooden tower was demolished and a new one was built of brick. The church’s interior included a pulpit, a tomb, an organ, a baptismal font and the main altar, above which there was a painting depicting the Archangel Michael. Today, the painting and the side-altars can be found in the new Parish Church of St Michael. Next to the walls, there are graves of the reformer Kauschnitz, Baroness Františka Skrbenská and the horticulturalist Wenzel Wágner, co-founder of the park. By the beginning of the 20th century, the church was in such poor shape that it was decided to build a new one, using large amounts of stone from the old church..
