The listed building of the Lutheran Church (information board in Košariská ulica)

The church was built in 1814 and is one of the churches constructed by the Lutheran Church of the Apostolic Confession following the Tolerance Decree of 1781. It bears the marks of the ancient ideals of art, meaning a return to the strict order of Classicism. It is characterised by a longitudinal floor plan and an atypically positioned altar for the age, i.e. located opposite the main entrance, in the middle of the longitudinal wall. On the opposite site, facing the parsonage’s courtyard, there is a semi-circular sacristy with an entrance for the minister. Above the main entrance, which could not have opened to the street at that time, there is a small onion-domed tower topped with a double cross.
