Church of St John the Baptist
Jun 2018 • Family
Second most important church in Bardejov, in hands of roman catholic community. Construction begun in mid 15th century for the Augustinian order, but it is quite likely it stands on the remains of older church, also of Augustinian origin. When the Augustinians gone, church for some time in 17th changed hands, becoming a protestant temple. Then in 18th century Fransciscan order took over. The former monastery - after all changes and reconstuctions over the centuries, stands on the souther side of the church, and is not available for tourists. Church can be visited inside at times, but it wasn't so when we were there, so we ony admired it's outer shape. Not the best part of UNESCO world heritage in Bardejov, but still blends in nicely into historical substance of the city.
