So glad we were able to visit this church (although a rebuilt one as the original was purposely destroyed to wipe out the Huttite influence. The ladies in charge were so very nice, and provided us with information sheets in English, so we could appreciate the building and the events that took place here. Having known about Martin Luther and... More

We walked past twice before we found the chapel as you notice the restaurant in the courtyard before you notice the chapel. We received a warm welcome from the ticket desk staff and a lady was very helpful in explaining some of the history of the chapel to us. There are also some very useful information sheets in a variety... More

For 60 ckr you get access to the main hall, where concerts are performed. You receive an explanatory note( available in many different languages) . On the first floor there are three rooms with i formation on Jan Hus.takes about half an hour to 45 minutes. There are drinks on the market in front of the museum.

Must have been some divine intervention. We reached Prague on a day when there was a national holiday.Jan Hus, the reformer / preacher was martyred on this day. And Bethlehem chapel was the place where he used to preach his brand of Christianity. Being non Christians, the place was important to our group purely from the historical perspective and the...

A brethren chapel repaired by the Communist Party and maintained today by the University. Jan Hus preached here while being a professor at the University and the Queen's confessor. The chapel was built for the preaching of the Gospel in the Czech language at the same time that John Wycliffe was campaigning in England. The chapel became a focal point,... More

This church dates back to the 1400s, when Jan Hus, the great reformer preached here. His living quarters are attached to the chapel. He was burned at the stake for his religious beliefs in 1415. I find it interesting that he is now depicted as a social reformer rather than a religious one. I am sure he would beg to... More

But there is definitely something to learn inside. The entrance fee is only 60czk and you get access to the main hall with a guide in which you can read about the history of the building. Then you climb upstairs, where there are three small room with exhibits and panels describing the life and death of John Huss. As I... More

Go here no matter what language you speak! They have a guide for you! As a linguist who studied 15 languages (fluent in only 3), I was pleasantly surprised how many 1-page guides in different languages were offered. After you pay your entry fee (less than $1), a docent ushers you into the sanctuary and offers you a language guide.... More

We stumble upon this church last week as we were looking for a place to enjoy a hockey game and a few drinks. The place is very pretty and a little out of the way from all the city buzz of the Old Town. The church is very beautiful and I love the architecture.

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
