Sancta Barbara Wooden Chapels Festival

Wooden churches and chapels represent the peak of the traditional Baroque architecture of North Croatia. Although there were many of them initially, especially in the areas rich in the common oak, merely about 40 of them dating from the 17th to 19th century still remain today. The complex of wooden sacral architecture which impresses with its architectural simplicity and originality was created in Turopolje, which served as a center of concentrated original traditional creative power spreading its influence onto Pokuplje and Posavina, the geographical space where the tradition of building wooden churches continued deep into the 20th century. This authentic and valuable piece of cultural heritage offers an exceptionally attractive tourist destination, yet it remains insufficiently presented. Therefore, the Sancta Barbara Wooden Chapels Festival will organize exquisite musical programs in these unique authentic sacred spaces of wooden chapels. Watch the opening of the Wooden Chapel Festival live on Sunday, July 7, 2019. at 20 pm at www.festivaldrvenihkapela.com!
