St. Salvator is a beautifully restored early 17th century church, located close to the Old Town Square
. It is the largest evangelical church in Prague.
St. Salvator Church was founded by German Lutherans, with the foundation stone laid in 1611. The building was made possible by a religious dictate released by Emperor Rudolf II, which legalised freedom of religion in the Czech lands.
St. Salvator changed ownership several times as a consequence of political events, and was finally sold to Czech evangelists in 1863. Today the parish congregation of the Czech Brothers Evangelist Church worship here.
St. Salvator is set in a pleasant location in the heart of the Old Town, on a square. The interior of the church is impressive, made of cleanly polished stone, with a very high central aisle and large windows.
Classical concerts are only performed at St. Salvator at special times of the year.
During the winter the interior of St. Salvator is heated, but it is advisable to wear warm clothing for the concerts.
