We paid to enter this chapel which I don’t typical agree paying to enter a religious establishment and prefer the option of making a donation, inside. Did not really find this place interesting after having paid in to be honest.

A out off the way, understated chapel which shows the development of the Czech struggle with religious bigotry. Well worth a visit to see a beautiful site.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the
medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický

of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
