History of the Church
The location of the Church was originally occupied by the St. Jošt Chapel established already prior to 1334 by Peter I of Rosenberg and used to be part of the Rosenberg manorial hospital (Latrán No. 13). In 1596, Petr Vok launched a Renaissance reconstruction of the Church and two years later, the Church was given to the Protestants, nevertheless in 1600, Emperor Rudolph II prohibited its non-Catholic use. In 1787 – during the Josephine reforms – the Church was decommissioned and closed. Following those events, the fate of the Church was rather buoyant. From the beginning of the 18th century, it used to house a casino with a taproom and a dance hall on the second floor. After 1900, the site was used solely for accommodation purposes with shops and a restaurant on the ground floor. After the year 1920, there used to be, among other things, a Baťa shoe shop, and a small shop of Josef Seidel.
The publicly accessible premises of the tower and the garret are currently closed. We shall inform you about the opening and the offer of tours.
