Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We took a trip to Bardejov and we visited this old wooden church, too. It’s nearby, only a few kms and worth a visit. It was built in 15th century and it’s on the UNESCO World Heritage List with others wooden churches in Slovakia, but it’s the it is the only Roman Catholic church. Unfortunatelly it was closed so we couldn’t see the inside.

Can't believe this wooden church dates back to the very beginning of 16th century. The village of Hervartov, where the church stands, is only 10 minutes drive from Bardejov, the biggest town in area. But that drive takes visitors to completely different world, as Hervartov is small, and somewhat lost somewhere on the slopes of Cergov mountains (Čergov). Still in its mint condition St. Francis stands in the middle of the village, by small stream. We only got a chance to explore it from the outside, as it was closed on that sunday late morning. There was a notice with two phone numbers to call if you want to see what's inside - non of those phone numbers was answered, unfortunately. But it is still worth visiting, even if only for a little walk around.

This wonderful piece of architecture that is over 500 years old is only a 10 minute drive from Bardejov, so very easy to combine both in a half day Unesco trip. We didn't realise prebooking was necessary to go inside the church, so we had to make do with admiration for its exterior. Would of loved to seen the wall paintings inside to then complement our visit. Also in attendance was the church's preserved dark shell, foot bridge, village moat and these odd blue huts very close by, but their purpose was unknown to us...

I saw many of the wooden churches in Slovakia and Poland, but none of them equals this one! I discovered it by mistake, I saw a sign on the road towards the UNESCO site and decided to make a turn and see it. I did not expect to see such a beauty! The original frescoes are still there, painted on wood, perfectly preserved!

This church is the oldest of the wooden churches in Slovakia and it is well worth visiting if you are in the Bardejov area as it is just a short car journey. Please make sure you BOOK before visiting! Otherwise you will not be able to get inside. There is a telephone number on the notice board of the church as well, but I would definitely recommend booking before you set out. The guide is very friendly, incredibly knowledgeable and speaks English. She talked us through the frescoes.and it made the visit that much more engaging.
