Nepomuk Church is a unique site due to its interesting ultra symmetric architecture. It´s very minimalistic despite been built in a barocco style which was known for the difficult ornamentations. Photos of this place taken from the aerial view are very famous. However we were a bit disappointed with it´s current status. Being a part of UNESCO World Heritage Sites,... More

ザーザヴォウの駅から2Aのバスで行きました。荷物は駅の預かり所で預けられます。 中の見学時間は決まっており、時間になるとドアの前に集まっている人で中に入って説明を聞けます。 帰りのバスの時間に注意が必要です。 それでもその独特の作りと雰囲気は、一見の価値ありです。 I went to here by 2A Bus from Sazavou station.There are bagage room in station. touring time is fix. I waited in front of door. and I could hear explanation about this place. Attention is needed time of the return bus.. But this place is worth seeing.

Behind the walls is church and cemetary. Its... More

As you drive through the urban town of Zdar you have no idea of what you will suddenly see at the end of a street of houses. I arrived on clear crisp Sunday morning and the first sighting takes your breath away. You have the central church surrounded by cloisters in perfect symmetry. Don't miss this.

You can find a car park at the Monastary, in Zdar, from wich you can walk over the bridge with statues and reach in ten minutes the church of St. John of Nepomuk at Zelena Hora, wich is really on a green mountain. The church is a unique work of art of the architect Santini, perhaps the most successful of... More
