Overview

4 hoursMobile & paper tickets accepted

This tour describes the connection between religion as an instrument of power and the role of architecture as an implementer of religious ideologies. Prague was both the starting point for the first major Reformation movement, the 30-year war and the "testbed" for the recovery of the later largely Protestant population to Catholicism through the Baroque art work. The activities of the Jesuits and the Catholicism of the House of Habsburg are also explained. I also talk about the emergence of the Gothic and the separation of Orthodoxy and Western Christianity.

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: St. Vitus Cathedral, III. nádvoří 48/2, 119 01 Praha 1-Hradčany, Czechia

St. Vitus Cathedral is not only interesting from an architectural and art historical point of view, but is also a symbol of the centuries-old coexistence of Czechs and Germans.It is located in an unusual place in the middle of the castle, since its predecessor churches were to replace an earlier Slavic sanctuary and thus create peace and are State symbol.
