“Historically important site of the Christian reformation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

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. It is only 60Kr per adult.

“Interesting Chapel, informative exhibition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

This is a chapel not very appealing in its appearance outside but beautiful inside. Not like most of the Catholic church, it is just solemn and simple, which provided many believers in Jan Hus time a place to meet and practiced their belief. We paid an entrance fee and get an English pamphlet which explains everything inside the chapel. The upper room of the chapel is a small museum featuring exhibition of reformation history and thing about Jan Hus. I believe most Christian like us would find this place very interesting, worthwhile visiting.

“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.
