Show sight on map

The Evangelical Church at the Parish Congregation of the Evangelical Church of Czech Brethren is a sacral building built between 1930 and 1931 in Prague's Smíchov, in Na Doubkových Street. The author of its ideological design was Filip Křížek, whose son Jaroslav designed the building. However, the congregation did not have enough funds for the construction of the church, so it decided to issue lottery tickets, the proceeds of which helped to cover part of the costs. Nevertheless, the congregation went into debt and paid off the installments until the Second World War. The ceremonial opening of the new church took place on September 28, 1931 and the first sermon was delivered by university professor František Bednář. At the beginning of the 21st century, the members of the congregation considered a major reconstruction of the interior of the house. Although the representatives of the choir initially chose the design by architect Hana Seho, it did not gain the support of the other members of the choir and was therefore abandoned. Another tender resulted in a proposal from the MCA studio, which is finally implemented.
