St. Salvator Church at Křižovnické Náměstí in Prague, Czech Republic

On your way to the Charles Bridge, take a moment to stop at Křižovnické náměstí (Crusaders’ Square) to appreciate several of its historic features. This is the intricate Baroque façade of St. Salvator Church built in 1602 by the Jesuits. It is dedicated to Saint Salvator of Horta. He was a 16th century Franciscan brother who frequently healed the sick with a sign of the cross. The sandstone statues of saints by sculptor Jan Jirí Bendl were added in the mid-17th century. In the center is the Virgin Mary. St. Salvator Church regularly hosts wonderful organ concerts.
