The Hill of Petrov


St. Paul and St Peter’s Cathedral stands on top of Petrov hill with its’ wiry spires visible from miles away. Following the destruction of Petrov hill in 1645 by Swedish forces, the cathedral got re-constructed by Mořic Grimm in a baroque style. Next, the outside and whole choir got Gothicized during the early twentieth century. Not too long ago, Jiří Marek gave some stunning modernist/expressionist’ Stations of the Cross. The Archbishop’s Renaissance Palace is adjacent to the cathedral.
