Evangelical Church of Augsburg Confession in Sučany

The village of Sučany, situated in the valley of the Váh River, is located 7 km from the district town of Martin. Although the oldest written mention of the settlement dates back to 1264, when it was a royal property, the church chronicle mentions the local parish as early as the beginning of the 12th century. In the 13th century, the Sučjan manor was established, with its seat in the Sučjan castle, which was owned by the ancestor of the Balas family, Miko, son of Detrich. King Louis I granted Sučany town privileges in the middle of the 14th century, which considerably strengthened its importance as a commercial and cultural centre of the lower Turca. Courts were held here, tolls were collected, beer could be brewed and moonshine could be burnt. Sučany of that period also had the right of the sword. Among other monuments, there is an Evangelical church from the 18th century. The church, vaulted with a Prussian vault, is a three-nave building with a rectangular presbytery and a tower, which was added to the original building at the beginning of the 19th century. In 1811 the church was rebuilt and the entrance from the square was opened. The church was badly damaged by fires in the middle of the 19th century. Inside the nave there is an altar, baptistery and pulpit from the second half of the 19th century.
