    Clementinum Complex nearby Charles Bridge is a big and famous religious complex in Prague – one of its parts is Church of the Holy Saviour. Church is late Gothic style. Long time ago it was used as coins mint, later, from 1861 – it was opened for masses.

    As I have seen, church was not opened for public; there was advertisement for choirs, orchestras taken here. Church is quite photogenic from Charles Bridge.

    This Jesuit temple was built between the 16th and 17th centuries while the towers were added in the 18th century.

    Inside the church, you can admire the 17th-century ceiling fresco, The Four Quarters of the World by Kovar.

    Church of the Holy Saviour-Old Town

    Built as a part of the Jesuit college, this church was the first Jesuit church built in Prague. It was completed in 1601 but the statues on the top of the facade weren't added until about 50 years later. They were done by an artist named Jan Bendl. The Jesuits were able to gain a lot of power over the higher education system in Prague in the early 17th century. Now the old Jesuit school is the home of the National Library.

    Church of the Holy Saviour chapel

    Part of the Clementinum, once the Jesuit College and center of learning, and now the National Library, this church has a presence on Karlova Street that is hard to miss. This is part of the apse of the church and it juts out into the street. There is an entrance to the chapel through here but the main entrance is towards the Charles Bridge Tower. The church is only open for services.

    You have a very good view on Kostel Nejsvetejsiho Spasitele (Church of the Holy Saviour) from the Tower of Charles Bridge.
