Church of St. Wenceslas was built between 1929 and 1930. It is widely considered by experts to be one of the most successful Constructivist buildings in the Czech Republic.
The architect, Josef Gočár, made masterful use of the sloping terrain, which is reflected in the stepped roof.
The thin rectangular 80 m high bell tower looks like a white lighthouse on the Prague skyline.
