Smolnica

As the name suggests, Smolnica was a village traditionally inhabited by coal workers and tar makers. The first mention of the village comes from the beginning of the 13th century. 

It is not known when the first church was built in Smolnica, nor where it was located. The present church of St. Bartholomew was founded at the very beginning of the 17th century as a Lutheran church. The present church of Saint Bartholomew comes from the years 1776-77. Later it was renovated in the years 1905-1906 and 1937-38. Pinewood was used for its construction.
