Holy Trinity Church, Fulnek

The Roman Catholic Parish Church of the Most Holy Trinity in Fulnek, Czech Republic, is a landmark in the town of Fulnek. Built in the 18th century, Most Holy Trinity Church is architecturally and culturally significant as one of the most valuable baroque buildings of northeast Moravia. It is situated on the site of the original parish church, one whose existence was documented in the 13th century.

The new church building was constructed in connection with an increasingly popular devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary who is depicted in the local miraculous portrait The Virgin Mary of Fulnek. It is believed that the portrait wept after a prayer at the picture; subsequent prayers led to the occurrence of a number of miraculous cures.

The architect of the church was Nikolaus Thalherr. Its interior was decorated by ceiling frescos by Joseph Ignatz Sadler, and its paintings, by Ignatz Viktorin Raab and Felix Ivo Leicher. Other artists have worked on various features of the church.
