Ok, interesting but only visited as we were passing on our walk around that part of the city.trying to find our way.There is an entry charge
I thought this would be a good site due to its historic value. However, the chapel isn't much and isn't even old (was rebuilt in the 1950's), so save your time by skipping the inside.
This reconstructed chapel fails to impress (and the ridiculous entry fee doesn't help, either...). The famous Jan Hus preached here back in the early 1400's. Don't miss a visit to the glass shop behind the church. It's a brilliant shop and while the prices ARE high – these are works of art, literally.

The history of this early reformation movement is contained both within the chapel itself and the exhibition in the upstairs gallery. If you enjoy church history, especially that of heterodoxy, this chapel is a wonderful piece of history.
Like many early churches from the reformation, this is a simple reconstruction of the original Jan Hus church on the same site. The upstairs part describes the history of Jan Hus and the important role he played in the reformation of the Christian faith prior to Martin Luther. Dominique (see review below) is right, all Christians should pay a visit.... More
