Pearl of baroque architecture
The Pilgrimage Church of St John of Nepomuk at Zelena hora (Green Hill) was built between 1719 and 1722 according to the plans of Jan Blažej Santini Aichl from the initiative of Vaclav Vejmluva, a significant abbot of the Cistercian monastery. The church is one of the supreme pieces of Baroque Gothic architecture in Europe. The pilgrimage site was added to the UNESCO Heritage List in 1994. The Pilgrimage Church of St John of Nepomuk at Zelena hora was returned to the property of the church - The Roman Catholic Parish of Zdar nad Sazavou II - in August 2014, after a long period of 50 years.
We will visit this place on Tuesday 18/9/2018.
