Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and St. Charles the Great

Description

The Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and St. Charles the Great is located in the Karlov area of Prague. The originally Gothic church was rebuilt and augmented in baroque style. The church is a part of the former convent of the Augustinian Order in Prague’s Karlov. The erection of the church began in 1351. The five churches in New Town district that were founded by Charles IV form a regular cross. According to tradition, the builder of the vault had a deal with the devil to finish the construction. When the builder saw the vault finished he was amazed by its size. Full of fear that the vault would collapse he hanged himself on the supporting scaffolds. The vault survived. The devil kept his word and got the builder’s soul.
