Church of the Virgin Mary and St. Charles the Great

(Czech: Kostel Panny Marie a sv. Karla Velikého na Karlově)

The church was promoted by Emperor Charles IV in 1350 as part of the Augustinian Monastery and is unique for its star-ribbed vaulting, probably constructed by Bonifaz Wohlmut, the master builder of Emperor Ferdinand I's court.
