Church of the Assumption

Local name: Kostel Nanebevzetí Panny Marie

The Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary is one of the few souvenirs of the existing until the mid-twentieth century houses the Bridge. It is a late-Gothic hall building with a hip roof and a tower covered with a baroque helmet. Inside, there is currently an exhibition dedicated to Czech art from the Gothic and Renaissance periods.

The bridge was founded in the tenth century. Around 1970, a decision was made to demolish it due to the expansion of the open-cast brown coal mine. A few kilometers away the city of Nowy Most was created, consisting mainly of blocks of flats. The Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary was considered a valuable architectural monument and it was decided to save it. It has been moved on huge rails to the place where it stands today. It is located 840 meters from its original location.

The church is built of stone. The interiors are covered by a network vault supported by polygonal pillars. A church tower is open for tourists, which serves as a viewpoint. Inside, you can see collections of Czech sculpture and painting from the 13th to the 17th century. Among others, there are reliefs depicting the lives of city dwellers.
