SAINT GEORGE´S BASILICA, PRAGUE CASTLE
St. George's Basilica is the oldest church building within the Prague Castle complex. It is also the best-preserved Romanesque church in Prague. St. George's Basilica was founded by Prince Vratislav (915-921). The basilica was then enlarged in 973 with the building of St. George's Benedictine Convent. In 1142 it was rebuilt following a major fire, however the Baroque facade that we see today dates from 1671-1691. The altar painting and frescos in the dome are the work of V.V. Reiner. In the Gothic Chapel of St. Ludmila lies the tomb of the famous saint, widow of the 9th century ruler Prince Borivoj. Also buried in the basilica are Prince Vratislav and Boleslav II.
St. George's Basilica now serves as a concert hall, a delightful and popular setting for early evening classical concerts (while not too cold inside, it is advisable to wear warm clothing in the winter if you are attending a concert).
Bethlehem Chapel was founded in 1391, as a holy place where church services could be held in the Czech language. Jan Hus, the Czech national hero, preached here between 1402-1412. Bethlehem Chapel has a fairly torrid history, reflecting the various religious wars that had such an impact on Prague and the Czech Republic as a whole. In 1661 it was altered to a catholic church by the Jesuits. A major part of the chapel was then torn down in 1786. In the years 1950-1952 a complete replica of the original was erected on the site under the instruction of the architect J. Fragner. Preserved fragments of the original walls were integrated into the structure.
Bethlehem Chapel holds religious services once more, and is also a fine and popular venue for Saturday night classical concerts
St.MARTIN IN THE WALL CHURCH
St. Martin in the Wall Church was built in the Romanesque style from 1178-1187 in the settlement of Ujezd, which in those days extended to this area. Shortly after the church was dedicated to St. Martin, the settlement was renamed Ujezd of St. Martin. When the Old Town walls were built in the 13th century, Ujezd of St. Martin was divided in two. The larger part was left outside the walls and later became part of the New Town. The smaller part together with the church became part of the Old Town. The south wall of the church backed onto the Old Town wall, hence the name St. Martin in the Wall. St. Martin has now been restored to its original splendour. Aside from Sunday worship, it only opens for classical concerts. The excellent acoustics of the church and the historic setting make these events well worth attending. In the winter the interior of the church is heated.
The Theatre Hybernia is situated in the center of Prague at „Náměstí Republiky“ Square, near to subway station „Náměstí Republiky“ (line B), opposite to the Municipal house.The building was bulit in the 17th century as a baroque church of the Saint Ambrosius. After successful reconstruction, Theatre Hybernia was reopened on December 2006 like modern, air-conditioned theatre/concerts hall with 1000 seats, 2 restaurants, 4bars and summer terace.
