According to the chronicles, the gothic church of the Asumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary located in Solec was built prior to 1352 A.D.
Neither periods of war or hunger, nor other numerous disasters during the following centuries caused any serious damage, so that the church has preserved its original style as a dominant element in a beautiful Czech landscape till the end of the 20th century.
However, due to human neglect and especially after the exodus of Christianity, this precious church was almost destroyed during the last years of the communist rule, between 1980 and 1990 A.D.
Since 1990 the exterior of the church has been partially renovated despite tight budgets and difficult conditions. As such, the architectural heritage, especially some precious artefacts, both in the interior and the facade will be saved for future generations.
The devastated interior of the church is a bitter example of how Catholicism was martyred under the rule of Communism and the indifference towards religion that persists today.
Holy mass is celebrated once a year only, on the Satturday afternoon closest to the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (August 15).
