Pilgrimage Church of St John of Nepomuk in Zelena Hora
The History of the Pilgrimage Church of St John of Nepomuk
Five Chapels, Five Altars, Five Entrances!
Even the church itself takes the shape of a five-pointed star! The stars are also a recurring motif, popping up on walls, windows, ceilings, doorframes, and more. Decoration both inside and out is fairly minimal, but it’s the architecture here that’s the real star. All in all it’s a fascinating spot with a uniquely Czech history, and well worth adding to your itinerary in Bohemia!
