Anglican Church

In the street Russian in Marianske Lazne many tourists frozen in disbelief in front of a neat little Church of red brick, which is made in traditional English style. Neat house with a red tile roof and big window-rose rather expect to see somewhere in the Scottish or Welsh village, but certainly not in the Czech Republic. The appearance here of the Anglican Church is evidence that Marianske Lazne for several centuries, is considered a resort of global scale and the favorite place of people of different nationalities and religion.

A small Anglican Church was built in Marianske Lazne the means of the inhabitant of Foggy Albion - Mrs. Scott of Rodono, noble ladies, which has lost at this resort with my husband and with the construction of the temple of God decided to perpetuate his memory. In 1867, she brings a city for 12 thousand gold, which was enough to begin construction. The design of the Church engaged the famous architect William burges, who lived and worked in London. This small Church was his last creation. Led the construction of the temple personally, Friedrich Sickler another architect and architect who has devoted much of his time working on architectural objects in Marianske Lazne. Was no exception and the Anglican Church. It was built very quickly, but after some time, began to repair and build, almost drastically changing the original idea of two geniuses. From the construction of those years have preserved a few interior items, including a chair for the priest and a Board on which was engraved information about the visit to the temple of the king of great Britain Edward VII. Now the Church building is used for concerts.
