Chapel of St Florian & St Sebastian, Bzenec

Starý hrad
Bzenec, 696 81

The chapel that rose from the ashes. Count Erdman Proskovský had a chapel dedicated to St Florian and St Sebastian built on the site where a castle once stood. Thanks to its location, it rightly became a picturesque landmark of the town, but also a frequent target of storms and lightning. The real disaster came at the end of World War II, when the retreating soldiers of the German army mined it and blew it up. The dilapidated torso of the chapel was restored in 2017 and it now serves as a tourist destination with an observation tower and space for cultural and social events.
