Photos of the pilgrimage church of St. John of Nepomuk at

Zelena Hora - Green Mountain

near Zdar nad Sazavou, Czech Republic. It was built between 1719 and 1722 in an architectonic style called Baroque Gothic which has no parallel anywhere in Europe. The abbot of the Zdar monastery had this pilgrimage church built to celebrate the memory of the Czech martyr and saint, John of Nepomuk. Built by Prague architect Giovanni Blasius Santini, who decided to use the five-pointed star as the principal symbol in his remarkable structure.

This site has been entered in the UNESCO list of world cultural heritage
