Hutterite Chapel

Based on some sources, it is believed to stand on the site of the original Hutterite prayer house. The Hutterite chapel bears the date 1837 on the gable. It is problematic to determine whether it is the same building, the construction of which was initiated in 1767 by Maria Theresa, when the Hutterites converted to Catholicism. It is dedicated to the Holy Cross. A sanctuary has been preserved from the original chapel – a shrine from the old prayer house. It features Rococo furniture and sculptures from the 18th century. The Hutterites proceeded with re-Catholicization on condition that they had their own German-speaking priest. He served Mass daily in the chapel, but on Sundays they went to the parish church in the village. To this day, masses are served regularly in the chapel every Tuesday.
