Recently renovated with loads of gold leaves, the shiny tops of this luxuriously looking orthodox church are glistening like flames of gold under the bright Czech sun. The renovation has fully brought to life the bright colors and rich decorations of this majestic looking piece of architecture. Interiors are also very bright and full of colors. Be careful not to wear shorts or you will not be allowed inside during Sunday functions.
We climbed a rather steep hill in the rain to get there. The sign outside said it was open till 6 (or maybe it was 5) whichever it wasn't closing for about an hour. We entered the vestibule where a small room on the left had a woman tending an information booth with much literature. An older woman entered the church at about the same time. The 3 of us entered the sanctuary only to to greeted with a loud floor cleaning machine. Just then a fellow in black unceremoniously ushered us out. Not exactly the Christian greeting one might expect from a man dressed in what appeared to be clerics garb. Needless to say we did not donate nor will be returning.
