This is a reconstruction of the place where Jan Hus began his campaign against the excesses and corruption in the Church of Rome. A contemporary of John Wycliffe doing a similar task in England, Hus was prosecuted by Jesuits and burned as a heretic. There is a lot of information and evidence of his activities. This is a significant historic... More

Some details are medieval, but the original chapel was breakdown in the 19th century and turned to a house. Now the Chapel is rebuilt in its original shape Interesting illustrations on the walls, e.g. taken from manuscripts. There is also a museum on the 1st floor dedicated to Jan Huss. Worth to visit!!!!

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

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

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.
