  • It is a church located near the mirror maze. Could not get inside before you go into a mirror maze, went to this church, but closed. Sorry!

  • I believe that every second tourist who visited Prague, cut out a couple of hours and climbed to the top of Peterzhinskogo Hill, offering just the magic views of the vineyards of his foot of the Czech capital. Well, after climbing to Peterzhinsku Tower or "wandering bludishte" God himself commanded to touch the eternal ... And meet some new vibes, IMHO, Sacred Heart Peterzhina-Cathedral Church of St. Vavrinec (Katedrální chrám sv. Vavřince na Petříně). Let doesn't scare you off, my dear reader, so unusual hearing the word "Vavrzhinec"-the question is certainly known to you the Holy Lavrentii, arhidiakone Roman Christian community to die during the persecution by Emperor Valerian erected. Peterzhin himself to prazhakov-holy place (no wonder they say that mossy times on top of arranged 956429 pagan shabashy, and after a while even built a pagan temple). The first mention of sacral building erected on this site, belongs to the year 1135. In an era when the Czech King Charles IV rules, later Holy Roman Emperor, on the site previously erected cult structures already built a new Gothic church. As time went on, changing tastes, habits, styles, and in 1770 by the project of the Czech architect of Italian descent with the straightforward name Ignaz Alois Jan Nepomuk Pillardi (Jan Alois Nepomuk Ignac Palliardi) temple building has undergone extensive reconstruction, the results of which we see at present is the one-naved church with two twin towers with a height of 24.5 metres in the Czech Baroque style. The third dome of the temple, as though not built-in Hunger wall, slightly below the 22.7-meters. For lovers of pofotat-chic look at Catholic Church opens with Peterzhinskoj height of the Tower, so I recommend!
