  • This church is "hidden" in one of the quiet streets of old Prague, in the Mala Strana area. Tourists can easily pass it (and we were passing by with his wife for many years), because prominent Tower Street Church, and they didn't impress in Prague many other interesting sights, including near the Church, which attract attention. The same can be said of Gates-sources on the Internet claim that this is the architectural style of the late Renaissance, but my uninitiated look somehow seen Gothic elements (in particular, this is indicated by the "sharpness"). They are the same nondescript in appearance. The only thing that made us pay attention to this church is the Maltese crosses on domes and pediment of the gate. So, this temple of the hospitaller order, also known as St. John. It is called the Church of Virgin Mary under chain (Kostel Panny Marie Pod Retezem). Why such an unusual name, there are many interpretations. According to one version, the Church was a statue of the Virgin.

  • The "unfinished" Church. Planned the largest church in Europe - was never completed because of war in the middle ages. An impressive equipment in a Gothic Baroque style, crazy ceiling height for a small church. When passing by should you look once.

  • it belongs not only to the oldest but also most remarkable sacral monuments of our homeland. Why just "under the chain" with the grammatically archaic localization of the "bridge end". In 1153 he married Judith Judy's second Czech crowned King of the Premyslid princes, first with the hereditary right of the Czech Crown - Vladislav. The wedding procession took place just after the newly completed stone bridge over the Vltava River, at the ends of which were two Romanesque churches.
  • Small church worth a stop to look at. Beautiful Cross at the entrance.
  • Great and quite place in Prague. One of the places in cz where you can see a lemon tree with fruits...
  • Nice to take a quick rest and enjoy a bit of silence in the busy streets.
  • Passed by in a nice stroll near Charles Bridge
