Church of the Holy Trinity in Fulnek
The Church of the Holy Trinity in Fulnek in North Moravia is the town’s landmark together with the chateau. It is artistically one of the most important Baroque buildings in all of North Moravia. The building from the mid-18th century is situated on the site of an ancient parish church documented as far back as the 13th century.
The new church was built around 1750 in connection with the rising of the cult of the miraculous painting of the Virgin Mary, which was said to have shed tears and healed several sick people after they prayed for help. The painting can still be seen in the church above the main altar. The ancient church was no longer able to take all the pilgrims and was therefore replaced with a new Baroque church following the design of the architect William Thalherr. The church and the chapel are fitted with uniform Baroque furniture. The unique wall paintings rich in symbolism, thematically linked to the consecration of the Church were completed by Olomouc painter Josef Ignác Sadler in 1760.

Town of John Amos Comenius

When you are in Fulnek, be sure to visit its square. In the corner you will find a modest building that recalls the times when the town was the centre of the Unity of the Brethren and also its main representative John Amos Comenius (1592-1670), educator, philosopher, writer, theologian, reformer, and the last head of the Unity of the Brethren in Fulnek in the years 1618-1621. The building that once belonged to the congregation, with a prayer room, school and garden, probably built at the end of the 15th century, was later used as a granary, riding school and a poorhouse.
