Church of the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord

This strange train station like church was built in 1932 and is one of the most unique structures in the city of Prague. Unlike the majority of churches in Prague, this one, although built in 1932, is modern in comparison with the hundred plus year old churches in Prague. The Slovenian architect Joze Plecnik was also responsible for some innovative additions to Prague Castle. The strange brick church on Jiřího z Poděbrad Square showcases a massive tower complete with a large transparent clock, giving it the train station look. Early Christian basilicas and Egyptian temples inspired the church. The interior is simple with a red and black color scheme. This is a must see for lovers of architecture.
