Church of Saint Giles

Saint Giles is a 14th-century church that is part of a Dominican convent in the old city of Prague. Located on the site of an old 13th-century Romanesque church, the current church is a Gothic reconstruction. The building was handed over to the Dominicans by King Ferdinand II in 1625. The 17th-century Baroque interior is now the site of classical concerts.

Bethlehem Chapel

The Bethlehem Chapel was built between 1391 and 1394 and was intended for preaching in the Czech language. The Bethlehem Chapel is mainly associated with the work of Jan Hus (1370-1415), who became its administrator on 14th March 1402. After changing its use many times, it fell into ruin and was therefore largely demolished in 1786. It was rebuilt in the first half of the 1950s as a memorial to the Hussite movement.
