St. Andrew’s Church in the village of Klokočov

In the distant past, Klokočov belonged to the Vítkov parish, though in 1640 it was allocated to Radkov. In 1784 a curacy was established in Klokočov, which in 1858 was elevated to become a separate parish. In 1807 a stone church was raised in the village and dedicated to the apostle St. Andrew. The church is built in the precinct of the cemetery, in the centre of the village and is well maintained by the local parishioners.
