    Attraction Church of Assumption of Virgin Mary in Budslav
    The community of the church, disproportionate to the scale of the former village, and now of the usual village, immediately captures the attention of every guest. The church will force everyone to throw aside everything that he was busy on the road before his gaze met this fascinating stone block. Obviously, this was the psychological calculation of the Bernardine fathers, who built their residence here in the second half of the eighteenth century, in order to make "I will praise" from it, where Budslav went from. In 1613 a miraculous icon of the Mother of God appeared here and the place became a real center of pilgrimage. In 1767-1783, in connection with the increase in the number of pilgrims who arrived in Budslav, the Bernardine fathers unfold here the grandiose construction of a new church that was eight times larger than the old one and was consecrated in the name of the Ascension of the Blessed Virgin Mary. To bow to the miraculous image and appreciate the interiors of the legendary church you will be able to during this excursion.
