  • This cathedral of the Holy Spirit is the seat of the Bishop. The church was originally built in the Gothic style and later rebuilt in Baroque style. It is the dominant not only the town of Hradec Král...  more »
  • Cathedral of a typical and simple beauty, but it is very worthwhile. A very nice Nativity scene and, outside, a stunning Christmas tree-a huge yekeen_idowu, placed specially for the occasion, and very well decorated.

  • This is architecturally an important building (apparently) being built with the unusual medium of bricks at the time. It is in the heart of the town (in so many ways), so worth a visit. However the in...  more »

  • One of the most beautifull holy mass I was able to attend in long time.
  • Very beautiful and old building in Hradec Kralove :)
  • Impressive!
  • Oh yeah, bad luck ... Although the temple is open daily, when I arrived, it was closed. I've been on it about the most, because it is the only Medieval Gothic church in the city and suburbs, who survived the massive redevelopment of the city at 18 strength. of the century. Even though I had několikkrát, I relished. Beautiful brick building was established (apparently) in the year 1307 Eliška Rejčka;, widow of Václav II. (Hradec was in those days the Royal dowry town). Year 1424 here was supposedly buried Jan Žižka from trocnov (but his body was later transferred to čáslav). After the fire in 1339 it was rebuilt, the towers were raised by one floor, and were given the new bells. The largest of them, Michael of 1496, weighs 3.8 tons. In the years 1783-1789 was fixed in the Baroque style, luckily, about 100 years later, then regothicized in again. Oooh, bad luck ... Although the temple is open daily, just when I arrived, it was closed. I was lookin forward to see ' it so much, ' cause it is the only medieval Gothic church in the whole town and suburb of Hradec, which survived the massive fortress reconstruction of the city in the 18th century. At least I walked around it several times to enjoy it. A beautiful brick building was founded (apparently) in 1307 by Elisabeth Richeza of Poland, the widow of Vaclav II. (Hradec was at that time a royal dowry town). In 1424 Jan Žižka of Trocnov was buried here (but his body was later transported it). After the fire in 1339 it was rebuilt, the towers were raised by one storey and got new bells. The largest of these, Michael (made in 1496) weighs 3.8 tonnes. Between 1783 and 1789 it was repaired in the Baroque style, fortunately for about 100 years later it was again regrooved.

  • Hradec Kralove-very cosy Czech town. Tourists here-one, two, and obchjolsja, and colour though take away. The Cathedral was restored and very cool "osovremenen" backlight senmornymi LCD screens inches to fifty-where you can watch the city panorama, etc. but this is totally not spoiled the impression of antiquity and greatness. Playing music-the nastorazhivajushhaja adds color. Bell glass copy of the Cathedral inside, Lookout-has everything to feel the atmosphere. Memory you can buy souvenirs. The entrance is worth a penny.
