Wooden Church of the Protection of the Most Holy Mother of God, Hunkovce
The wooden Greek Catholic Church of the Protection of the Most Holy Mother of God sits on the hill in the centre of the village and is surrounded by trees. The Church, or in other words, the Eastern Catholic Church of Byzantine-Slavic Rite, refers to the Cyril and Methodius traditions and is considered to keep the direct legacy of this tradition. The wooden churches situated in the Central and Eastern Carpathians are unique examples of sacred buildings of Eastern Christianity. On the one hand, the churches reflect the simplicity and the poverty of local residents in that region, whilst, on the other hand, they reflect their deep devotion and the hope man places in God.
