The church itself stands on the Southern slope of Petřín, in the location of the former villa of the factory owner Ried von Riedenstein. Ladies from the Sacre Coeur order started building a boarding school for girls here in the 1870s and the church was built here subsequently. This building and the nearby Church of the Annunciation in the former St. Gabriel monastery are unique examples of the so-called Beuronese style.
The style bearing the name of the Beuron Archabbey of St. Martin is heavily inspired by the styles of deep past – buildings from the early stages of Christianity and renaissance. The principles of symmetry, rhythm and harmony are observed in buildings designed in this style. Circle, square and triangle are the dominating geometric shapes.
The current unique character of the church comes from the impressive idea for the use of this formerly sacral luxury building. The respectable and large space is transformed into a place where the lives of two people are joined in vows of loyalty. This unique moment is imprinted in people’s mind even deeper as it takes place in the luxury design of this church. There is beautiful backlighting throughout the church, the decorations match the environment perfects and highlight the special character of the wedding. The Naxos company as the tenant in the premises states that the busiest times in the church are in autumn, December, May and June.
Besides the church, the surrounding areas, such as the side aisle about 86 m long and the courtyard with the area of 600 m2, are also available for rent. These premises are suitable for all types of social and corporate functions. Thinking about organising an unconventional evening of music with ample drinks bar? This and much more is available in the luxury Sacre Coeur.
