Church of St John of Nepomuk

In many ways, the Church of St John of Nepomuk is rather different from what tourists visiting Kutná Hora expect from the local architecture. The church was designed by F. M. Kaňka in 1734-1754, with its final appearance being partly the work of no one less famous than K. I. Dientzenhofer. The construction work was adopted by the community of Kutná Hora, which decided to finance it from collections at requiem masses as well as from contributions made by private donors. The result is an exceptionally valuable and consistent work from both its architectural as well as decorative aspects, of which attention should be drawn to the ceiling fresco depicting the legend of St John of Nepomuk by J. Redelmayer and F. X. Palek. The facade of the building is decorated with statues of St Adalbert and St Prokop, set in side niches.
