This Baroque church of the Most Holy Salvatore you can find next to the Charles Bridge. It was built between 1578 and 1581. The architects of the building were the Italians Carlo Lurago and Francesco Caratti. Around 1640, the constructions started again and the dome laid over the main church ship. It was decorated with stucco from Jan Bendl’s workshop. Architect F M Kaňka raised the tower of the church and completed it in 1714.
Around 1780 the Czech composer Jan Jakub Ryba, who is the author of many traditional Czech Christmas compositions, played at the organ there.
Recently the organ has undergone reconstruction. So if you find time, try to visit the church at the time the organ will play. Concerts also take place there. The atmosphere is amazing. Otherwise, the church is accessible during the day 😊
