Elevation of the Holy Cross Church, Chvojnica
Pompl Bruno, Tomaschek J.
1935 – 1936
A rough stone, single-nave structure has been built in an impressive Neo-Romanesque style. The church is not large, but its symmetrical composition with a massive, relatively low stepping-down tower grants it a mystical, monumental expression. A threesome of broad arches creates a low entry archway. Simple interior framed by plastered walls is dominated by a modern altar. Architecture of the church is akin to religious works by E. Fahrenkampf and C. Holzmeister.
