Lower Žižkov and the Cubist Bethlehem Chapel Visiting

March 12, 2022, 12:45 PM

Žižkov is a very distinctive and special district of Prague. A walk through its lower part will show how it has developed since the middle of the 19th century, and on what roots its genius loci stands. We will talk about the urban planning of this residential area and we will show you some of the oldest local houses as well as the most important ones from a social and historic point of view. We will also visit the local Bethlehem Chapel – a modest but impressive modernist building with cubist elements, which is hidden in an inner courtyard of a tenement house near the Žižkov Town Hall.
