  • All shadow of a doubt, one of the sacred "discoveries" my regular Prague trip was the Church of St. Gabriel (Kostel Sv. Gabriela) which I unexpectedly for himself, "discovered", walking through Smihovu. I must say that this relatively young, IMHO, Prague area is not very rich in any church and architectural highlights, so I was doubly pleased to discover this unusual style an example of Roman sacred architecture of the Czech the capital. The temple complex is located on the southern tip of the matter how garden outdoors Kisnkih Holechkovoj (Holeckova), was built in 1888-1910 under the project of architects p. Hildebrand de Heptinna (p. Hildebrand de Heptinne) and p. Gislena Betjuna (p. Gislenus Béthune) and represented a mix of Benedictine monastery of the Congregation and the Church. The construction of this building was financed by the Countess Gabriela Svirt-Sporkovoj (Gabriely Sweert-Sporckové). As well as its patron saint St. Gabriel felt lady mentioned-secret of the patron saint of archers and mudrstvovat did not become deceitful, and consecrated the Temple in honour of this Saint 23 April 1891 year. The temple complex is decorated with four-storey tower with a height of 43 meters.

  • Church of St. Gabriel is located in the District of Prague-Smichov. It was consecrated in the year 1891 and since then it certainly is a decoration of the city. Funds for building gave Baroness Gabriel-Svirt Sporkova and the Church was named in honor of its Patron Saint. The Cathedral was built in neoromance style. He has a laconic form and finish. Yes and inside everything is simple and harmonious. The walls are painted so as not to disturb the faithful to communicate with God. Very nice Cathedral, if time-take a look.

  • The temple was built in the late nineteenth century, in neoromance style. For the Czech Republic is a rarity. Very monumental building. I came here Sunday morning, during the service. Parishioners were not very much. Austere Interior.

  • Beautiful monastery building. Such a shame it is used as storage for Czech Post. It is on sale now, and I hope it will be turned into something worth this building. I can well imagine a luxurious housing for the elderly, hotel, or something like that.
  • Super
  • A wonderful example of beuronského art. Go there before the Czech post will sell?!?!

  • The founder of the monastery and Arts patron was the Countess Gabriela Sweerts-Šporková that wanted to enter the Benedictine order. On the construction and decoration of the future monastery of Annunciation has donated substantial wealth, but died before the commencement of construction. On the proposal were invited to the monastery of the Benedictines of the Belgian Maredsous p. Béthun and p. Gislen Hildebrand de Heptinn. This resulted in a unique building, which is not very common with us representative called. beuronské art school. This emphasis on colorful geometric patterns and symbols and perhaps even eventually influenced the Czech modernism, or at least some artists and architects of the first decades of the 20th. of the century.
