svatý Jan Nepomucký

The Roman Catholic Chapel of St. John of Nepomuk in Prague 6-Dejvice at the intersection of U Matěje and Starý streets is the only one preserved of the twelve early Baroque chapels from the 2nd half of the 17th century, which lined the pilgrimage route from Růžek to the Church of St. Matthew. The chapel was significantly modified in 1876. At the end of the 1990s, the façade of the chapel was reconstructed to its present appearance without the knowledge of the monument authorities, during which the Classicist stucco decoration was removed. The polychrome and gilded wooden statue of John of Nepomuk from the end of the 18th century, which used to stand in a niche, is stored in the rectory.
