The wooden joint church of Leštiny is an evangelical joint church built between 1688 and 1689. In this Catholic region, "articular" Protestant churches were then allowed as long as they were made of wood (a material seen as temporary) and did not have a tower or bell. However, a bell tower was erected later in 1777.
The Saint-Michael chapel is located in the picturesque 13th-century castle of Orava. After his family obtained ownership of the castle in 1556, Juraj Thurzo (1567-1616), a fervent Protestant, was the one who endowed it with the Chapel of St Michael. The richly decorated baroque interior houses the tombs of the Thurzo family. Nationalised after the Second World War, Orava Castle is now a museum and its chapel hosts traditional concerts.
The New Synagogue of Žilina was built between 1929 and 1931 as a modernist version of Rachel's tomb near Bethlehem. Abandoned after the Second World War, the synagogue had several functions: theater, concert hall, cinema. From 2012 to 2017, the building has been restored and is now an art museum.
