  • It is a interesting place not only by being a colloquially became tyn Cathedral, but that is a replica of the Liberty Bell from Philadephie, who as the leader of the European delegation handed over the end of a 1. During World War II, saying that it was agreed that this then will tour the newly created European States after World War I, starting with Czechoslovakia. In Uzhhorod, but Bell lost, even when through the efforts of conservationists eventually found under a pile of garbage, ibid., and in 1928 moved to Prague. This was followed by a very strnitá way, including the interest of Fašounů about it, then even more problems with the 1870s before the Commies etc. Finally, the functional decoration in the Church of St. Anthony in Prague's Holešovice.

  • Well, I like Gothic and neo-Gorthic architecture and thus I just can’t dislike this kostel. But inside it quite ordinary looking kostel, nothing special.  more »
  • For me personally, familiarity with the sacred Prague began in 2001 now year by visiting the Church of Anthony of Padua (Kostel sv. Antonína Paduánského) that in Prague's Holešovice. Acquaintance turned "shapochnym" escaped, it is for this reason that 16 years later I returned to the walls of this very interesting, including from an architectural point of view, buildings to admire them and to make decent, IMHO, images. Despite the relative "youth" (the temple was built in 1908-1914 by architect František Miksa), Catholic Church of St. Anthony perfectly fits the religious component of the Czech capital, and is jedakoj recognizable Visual dominant of Holeshovic. The first thing that catches your eye when approaching the construction of two its majestic 63-metre Tower-Bell Tower with roofs in the form of numerous pyramids, built on the West side of the temple. The Church was consecrated in honor of one of the most famous Franciscan-Anthony of Padua (Sant'Antonio di Padova), famous for skillful nivelirovaniem Italian vnutriusobnoj fray with the Guelph Ghibelline. The Church is a fairly standard trjohnefnoe building, built in neogotcheskom style (I personally very impressed by the style of his "attempt to return to the past" (or even to Gothic), associated with the use of such visually interesting elements like ribs, arkbutany, buttresses, vimpergi, pinakli etc., transformed with taking into account the prefix "neo"). Main façade of the Church greets the visitors carved sculptures 956429 Saints by the sculptor Štěpán Zaleshaka: on columns right at the entrance (the so-called vaulted ciborium main gate) is a shape St Wenceslas and Saint Ludmila Czech (Chuck and patroness of the Czech Republic) and in niches of the original step structures between two towers (the so-called Gable)-the statue of the patron saint of the Church of St. Anthony in the Centre, flanked by the Saints Cyril and Methodius.
