Cathedral of the Holy Spirit

Local name: Katedrála Svatého Ducha

The Holy Spirit Cathedral was built in the Gothic style at the beginning of the 14th century. It is a three-nave building with a two-tower facade and a rectangular chancel. In the Royal Vestibule there are figures of Queen Ryksa Elżbieta and Elżbieta Pomorska. A valuable Gothic triptych can be seen in the side altar.

The church was built on the site of an earlier temple. Over the centuries, it was rebuilt several times. At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, it was regotized. All baroque accretions were removed from the building at that time. The towers were also reconstructed, adding them modeled on the original covers.

It is a three-nave building, built of brick and covered with a gable roof. The oldest known image of the coat of arms of the city of Hradec Kralove was engraved on the keystone of the vault. There is also a tin baptismal font from 1406 moved from the monastery in Podlazice.
