Church of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary - Na Slupi

The Church, whose construction was decided on by none other than the Pope himself.

As the end of 1359 drew ever closer, in Avignon, Pope Innocent VI granted Charles IV permission to establish a monastery under Vyšehrad for the Servite Friars, the Order of Servants of Mary, from Florence in Northern Italy. Legend has it that it was to pay homage to God for Charles’s miraculous recovery. In fact it was probably more about the Servites still not having any representation in Prague. This would have proven to be quite detrimental to the idea of Prague becoming the spiritual centre of Europe... The church construction started in the year of Our Lord 1360 and was most likely completed in Charles’s life time. The tower is somewhat of a Prague rarity, as it is deflected a whole 63 centimetres from the vertical axis. When you go in, you will be able to feast your eyes on the double nave and ribs of the cross vault leading onto the central column. At present the church is used by the Russian Orthodox Church, so in addition you can admire interesting icons.
