Church in Klokočov

The Greek Catholic Church in Klokočov, under the Vihorlat mountain, is frequently visited by many people due to it having the character of a pilgrimage site. The Church is visited due to the miraculous weeping icon of the Holy Mother of God. It happened in 1670 during the Kuruc wars when the army headed to Michalovce. People gathered in the wooden church in fear. When the looting army was nearby, the face of the Holy Mother of God was overshadowed and began to weep. The next day soldiers set the church on fire, but the icon was not damaged.
