Church of the Sacred Heart of the Lord in Vinohrady

Around the church, the city has a small territory for conditional a park. Literally a block away is the Zizkov Television Tower, which sticks out over the roofs of the beautiful houses on the north side. Thats there are landscapes, to be honest, very mediocre.

Although we must pay tribute, the building of the church itself for a while really makes you wander off your thoughts and grab hold of camera. Totally unusual for both old Prague and for Christian buildings in principle. We have somehow got used to the fact that the church is something peaked, with turrets, with bell tower, with arches and crosses.

And here the first thing that catches your eye is a huge clock. And the huge ones are not a figure of speech, but a fact. Transparent diameter dial is about eight meters and it is officially the most big clock in prague.

These watches are placed in a flat and wide tower that dominates over the Vinohrady district, towering over most of the old houses. And under the tower on you threateningly pushed the main building, which immediately causes an association with a mausoleum or crematorium.

When I walked around the building and looked inside, I realized that “flat” is the main form used in the construction Churches of the Most Sacred Heart of the Lord. Flat walls, flat ceiling, flat tower, almost flat roof. The whole composition personally It seemed to me a giant desktop set with a clock just pencils from it did not stick out.

However, suppose that with a more creative approach and under a certain angle of view, the church building is easily taken for the ark.
