Restoration of Upper Church will be the final big phase of restoration of the unique baroque Calvary.
The baroque Calvary, one of the dominant features of the central-Slovak city of in Banská Štiavnica, was put on the list of the 100 most endangered monuments in the world in 2007. After almost 10 years of hard work and extensive investments, it is gradually regaining its former beauty. Restoration of the most visible Upper Church will be the last big phase of a thorough restoration of this site listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
“We have been preparing for the restoration of the Upper Church for several years,” said Martin Macharik, chairman of the Kalvársky Fond (Calvary fund) whose main task is to take care of the Calvary, as cited in a press release.
