“Bethlehem chapel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

this is not a picture of the chapel. The chapel is best to visit during Christmas when there is the nativity celebration. Lots of vendors selling Christmas stuff, and there is a competition for the best/most different/classic/modern/etc nativity. Old Czech folk music and dancers.

“Rebuilt room with ticketed admission”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

It's ok - it's a big open religious space with some wall paintings and a lot of chairs like a conference room. I hadn't realised that it fell down a long time ago and was rebuilt, it's ok - but it costs to go in. I think it was £5 each, but I might have remebered wrong. We spent a nice 3 or 4 minutes inside sheltering from the rain. There are loads of hugely impressive churches nearby though.

“Beautiful and unusual Chapel of the Reformer, Jan Hus”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

I wound my way through the narrow streets of Prague to find the Bethlehem Chapel. This is an unusual style of building. Simple on the inside yet beautiful. I paid a small fee for the tour. I asked for a tour guide who spoke English and I was given a brief tour. Then I was given a pamphlet in English and visited the chapel. Upstairs are the living quarters where Hus once lived along with a small museum dedicated to Hus along with John Wycliffe and Martin Luther. This was very interesting and informative especially if you are interested in Christian history as well as the acts of the Czech church and the reformers.

“A very peaceful and beautiful chapel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2010

I thought that this place was very enjoyable, and excellent value for £2, including a little upstairs exhibit about Jan Hus. We went at 1pm on a Tuesday in August, and had the whole chapel to ourselves. It was very peaceful, and quite large for a chapel.

The interior is quite sparse compared to some of the more extravagant efforts at the Tyn Church or St Nicholas, but is still very beautiful. Of particular interest are the 30 feet deep well shaft, and the painted on (not engraved) patterns on the walls.

“Visit of Bethlehem Chapel with Chuck Swindoll in 2003”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2009

Spent several hours in this wonderful, historical chapel, where one sweet man, Jan Hus, challenged the church with some of its policies and lost his life for it. This is truly an early start of the Reformation--a must see for any Christian or lover of history.
Respectfully submitted,
Eileen
