Sacrial Monuments: Chappel, Other

The centre of Kořenov boasts the symbol of the village, visible from afar, the eight-sided chapel of Tesařov.

In the early 20th century German Protestants decided to build their own shrine on the hillock currently called Tesařov. The design was made by Dr. Otto Bartning, a designer of sacral buildings from Berlin. The funds necessary for the project were raised by the evangelical pastor's lectures in Silesia. The foundation stone was laid in 1909 and the building was completed in the same year. The cemetery at the chapel was established in 1911, but it took two more years to obtain the permit to bury the dead.
