The wooden joint church of Leštiny is an evangelical joint church built between 1688 and 1689. In this Catholic region, "articular" Protestant churches were then allowed as long as they were made of wood (a material seen as temporary) and did not have a tower or bell. However, a bell tower was erected later in 1777.
The Saint-Michael chapel is located in the picturesque 13th-century castle of Orava. After his family obtained ownership of the castle in 1556, Juraj Thurzo (1567-1616), a fervent Protestant, was the one who endowed it with the Chapel of St Michael. The richly decorated baroque interior houses the tombs of the Thurzo family. Nationalised after the Second World War, Orava Castle is now a museum and its chapel hosts traditional concerts.
The Evangelical Church of Rimavská Sobota was founded in 1786, and at that time it was located outside the city walls. As the evangelical population of the town was small compared to the Calvinists, they again turned to Emperor Joseph II (1765-1790) and asked him to collect donations from outside the state, which they obtained from the Swedish King Gustav III (1746-1792).
