Church of St John the Baptist (Ivanka pri Dunaj)

Baroque Church of St. John the Baptist was ordered built by Anton I Grassalkovich. The present-day church in Ivanka is the third church built in the village.
The first church was built by apprentices of St. Cyril and Methodius and was only a simple chapel made of wood. The second church was built from stone, and its choir section were made of wood. When the foundations were dug for the columns, which today hold up the expansive choir section, the foundations for the second church came into existence.

The present-day church began being built in 1770. The construction of its tower took 2 years. The tour clock was carried in from Vienna in 1880. The organ is from the year 1906. In 1991 the roof of the tower was reconstructed.

Documents from that time were placed in a compartment below the cross, to be viewed by future generations.
