Uličské Krivé

Wooden churches

By James Thomson

The church of St Michael the Archangel was built in 1718 and is the centrepiece of the village of Uličské Krivé, near Snina.

It is well preserved and features two towers with simple crosses which rise from a shingle roof. The church is set on a low stone base and surrounded by a cemetery. Some of the icons inside, which were painted in the 16th century, predate the church. It is not on the UNESCO list (see also article about Wooden churches in Slovakia).
