St. Nicholas Church

St. Nicholas church, whose origin dates back from 1516, was rebuilt in the late Gothic style in 1861 on its original site. The church tower was built as early as the 14th century. From the original church that carries years 1535–1562 on the portal remained only its lower portion. St.Nicholas church was the branch of the parish church in Prackovice town until 1864. The tower was restored( reconstructed) to its current appearance in 1881. The clock on the tower from 1906 is still functional. In the church bell tower, a specific bell called “umiracek” is used to acknowledge someone’s passing . The church has one nave with three sided closed chancel and a prismatic tower. The sacristy is located in the northern part of the church, the gothic portal on the west side and the lateral portal on the south side. Stone slabs with the now unreadable inscriptions, an altar with St. Nicholas, St. Joseph and St. John of Nepomuk statues can be found inside the church. Next to the altar is the entrance to the sacristy. In the lateral part is the Calvary. Regular Sunday Masses ( services ) as well as Easter and Christmas Masses are held here. The church is registered in the historical monument registry. Christmas concerts and on occasion organ concerts take place here in December. The church organ was restored in 2009 thanks to the donations of citizens and organizations. Since 2005 the church is the property of Velke Zernoseky village, who is responsible for the reconstruction of the roof, the tower and the entrance portal. The church’s cemetery was established in 1875 and has expanded since then. A grave registry has been in place since 1918.
