  • The Bethlehem Chapel

Above all beautiful historical building of the Bethlehem Chapel has location on Bethlehem Square. Firstly Bethlehem Chapel is a National Cultural Monument reminding us of the personality of Master Jan Hus and the Hussite period in Czech history.

HISTORY of The Bethlehem Chapel

The completely original chapel was built between 1391-1394 and was designed due to exclusively for preaching in the Czech language. Master Jan Hus and other Hussite priests preached there. During the war against indulgences in 1412, three Hus followers who were executed because they rebelled against selling indulgences were buried in this chapel.

In the late Middle Ages and throughout the Renaissance, consequently the chapel served as a parish church. Often referred to Jan Hus. Over the years, the chapel began to dilapidate and took damage therefore largely in 1786. Again the Bethlehem Chapel took cahnges in the middle of the 20th century. Specifically between 1950 and 1952, as a memorial to the Hussite movement, using all the preserved parts.
