Church of the Transfiguration of the Lord (Nová Dedinka)


The church represents a type of brick sacral building, which is common in the Danube region since the end of the 12th century. It was originally dedicated St. Philip and St. James, but today it is dedicated to the Transfiguration of the Lord.

The building was given its present form during the restoration in the middle of the 16th century. The church offers a beautiful example of one of the basic decorative elements of the romanesque style – the blind arcades. Only a minimum of the interior fresco decoration has been preserved – scenes with St. Michael the Archangel in the nave of the church and painting of St. Catherine in the presbytery. During the excavation a stone romanesque baptistery and 11 graves were discovered under the floor of the nave.
