St. Salvator is a large, 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. Its construction was made possible following a religious dictate by Emperor Rudolf II, which legalised freedom of religion in the Czech lands.
As a consequence of political events, St. Salvator has changed ownership several times. Today the parish congregation of the Czech Brothers Evangelist Church worship here, having purchased the church in 1863.
St. Salvator is set in a pleasant location in the heart of the Old Town. Its impressive interior is made of cleanly polished stone, with a very high central aisle and large windows.
Classical concerts are only performed at St. Salvator at certain times of the year, mostly during festive periods.
During the winter the interior of St. Salvator is heated, but it is advisable to wear warm clothing for the concerts.
