St Bartholomew's Church

Staré Město, Czech Republic

The original Church of Saint Bartholomew was built in 1295 and destroyed during the Hussite Wars. The today's Church of Saint Bartholomew was built together with a monastery in 1507–1514. It was used as a burial place of the Pernštejn family. In the interior there is a valuable main altar with the painting 'The Passion of St. Bartholomew' from 1692 by Michael Willmann and a painting decoration by Mikoláš Aleš.

Beautiful stained glass windows with a decorated ceiling just above the entrance to the Church and a rich altar. Nicely located church.

The parish church of St. Bartholomew in Pardubice belongs to one of the landmarks of the city and its historical core. The church is an original Gothic building and, according to documented records, it is mentioned here from the second half of the 13th century. It was also slightly modified structurally in several centuries due to capacity reasons. I didn't get inside because it opens, for example, for regular religious services and other important events in the city itself. For myself, I can only admire his beauty from the outside again ♥️??.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
