The Roman Catholic church of St. Andrew the Apostle in Liptovský Ondrej.

First mentions of this church come from 13th century; the original Gothic building was burned down during the kuruc uprising of 1708-1709 and then reconstructed in Baroque style. Inside you can find some precious wall paintings dating as far back as early 14th century.

Wikipedia: "Articular churches are wooden churches for Evangelical congregations erected under the terms of the Congress of Sopron of 1681. At this congress, summoned by the Habsburg Emperor Leopold I, permission was for the first time granted for followers of the Augsburg and Calvinist confessions to erect and maintain churches within the Emperor's dominions. As this permission was contained in Articles (i.e. clauses) 35 and 36 of the Congress's deliberations, the term 'articular' was applied to them.

The Sopron Congress was called against a background of social unrest, including civil revolt, religious friction and continuing threat of invasion from Turkey. The Emperor therefore determined that it was necessary to make concessions to his Protestant population to secure its loyalty. However, severe restrictions were placed on the Protestant congregations. No more than two churches could be built in each administrative region — in areas of strategic importance, the limit was one church — and buildings had to be outside city walls. Further regulations determined siting, and building procedures. As a consequence, the articular churches were all built of wood, mostly in the period 1681-1730. There were originally 38 such churches, nearly all located in the region of today's Slovakia.

Five articular churches survive today in Slovakia. Perhaps the most well-known is the church in Kežmarok, built between 1718 and 1730 under the direction of Juraj Müttermann, replacing an earlier structure of 1687. Others are at Leštiny (1689, restored 1860s), Hronsek (1725-6, a wood-framed structure now without internal wall-paintings), Istebné (built between 1686 and 1731) and Svätý Kríž (about 1693). The latter church was originally located at the village of Paludza, which was submerged in the Liptovská Mara reservoir in the late 1970s. Between 1974 and 1977 the church was carefully dismantled and restored before being rebuilt in Svätý Kríž, where it was reconsecrated in 1982".

The white-walled church of St. Ladislav in the village of Liptovské Matiašovce in Slovakia.

"The construction of the Roman Catholic Church of St. Ladislav was ordered by Ladislav Matiašovský (1643-1705), a prominent member of a zeoman family of Nižné Matiašovce. The evidence of this can be found in the Latin inscription situated above the entrance to the sacristy: «This church was founded in 1697 at the time of the reign of the Emperor Leopold I. The enlightened spiritual father, Ladislav Matiašovský, Bishop of Nitra Diocese, built and consecrated this holy work on behalf of St. Ladislav, King of Hungary on 20th March 1697». The church was built in the Renaissance-Baroque style. During the 18th century a Baroque fortification was added to it, which features loopholes and corner bastions. On addition to the Church of St. Ladislav, Ladislav Matiašovský also ordered the construction of the church and monastery in Liptovský Mikuláš-Okolične. The church of St. Ladislav is one of the most beautiful chuches to be found in the Liptov region".
