Antonek's Chapel

Drbetinci 6, 2255 Vitomarci ( Map )

Description

The closed-type chapel was built in the first quarter of the 20th century. At the altar, can be found the folk-carving of Jesus in the iconographic style of Jesus Christ, whose popularity grew in the 19th and 20th centuries. Inside, the preserved concrete floor with an interesting pattern is of note, most likely it came from the former factory that made items from cement in Krapje, near Ljutomer. The chapel was erected by the Čuček family as a sign of gratitude for the safe return of family members from the Austro-Hungarian war. On the spot where Antonek’s/Pravdič’s chapel stands today, was a cross dating back to the time of Saints Cyril and Methodius, to mark the spot where they stopped to pray. A path to the Church of the Holy Spirit in Stara gora passed by, which was used by Cyril and Methodius when they went to visit the sickly countess.
