St. George's parish church in Rum

Gothic on the outside, Baroque on the inside: this church, like many others in the area, was given a Baroque transformation. However, you can still see a reminder of its Gothic origins on the inside: the four-bay nave with vaulted ceiling. From the outside, the church presents itself as a late Gothic nave attached to a choir with a square end. The Gothic tower has a pointed gable roof and uncoupled round-arched acoustic windows and is connected to the sacristy on the north side of the choir. 

The church was first mentioned in 1337 but the foundations of the presbytery are even older: they date from the middle of the 13th century. At the time, the church was still very small but it eventually grew to encompass the new building from the 15th century. The last of the three altars was consecrated in 1499 and this marks the completion of the new construction of the church.
