Church of the Holy Ghost

This Baroque church was built in the mid-14th century for Benedictine’s convent. Later this church was destroyed in Hussite Wars and not long after damaged by fire in 1689. The exterior of this church, rebuilt after the fire, preserves the original Gothic buttresses and high windows, but the nave’s vault was rebuilt in Baroque style. Inside is a painting of St Joseph on the high altar, a 14th-century Pieta, the statue of St Ann and busts of St Wenceslas and St Adalbert. In front of the church stands a stone statue of St John Nepomuk.
