Rimavská Bana

Rimavská Baňa


Rimavská Baňa (Hungarian: Rimabánya) is located in the southeastern part of Slovakia. The main attraction of the village is the Romanesque style church, on the side of the hill, which dates from 13th century.

At the start of the 15th century, the Hussites took possession of the church and turned it into a fortification. The church gained its present external baroque features as a result of later alterations.


The Gothic wall paintings in the interior of the church date from the 14th century.

The most striking of these is the nearly 10m long depiction of the legend of Saint László.

The painted ceiling of the church dates from the second-half of the 17th century.
