Slovak Student Shed Light on Unrecognised Monument

A photo of an extraordinary building caught Caroline's attention: a chapel covered with fir bark situated in a forest. Who was the architect and when was it built? No information could be found in the region's chronicles. Only when Caroline contacted people who lived close to the chapel did she find the missing information. Take a look at what Caroline said about her competition entry.

"It is important that students look at the UNESCO heritage from the perspective of young people because it supports the diversity that builds the basis of the human heritage." This was the slogan for the Award Ceremony of Slovakia’s 12th EUSTORY History Competition in Bratislava on June 23rd, 2017.
