“Baroque Chapel of the Mortal Anxiety of the Lord”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2012

Currently serves Greek Orthodox believers. The chapel can be considered as a part of parish st.Nicholas and was part of the original urban Cemetery (under the chapel an ossuary). 1727-1731 Built in Baroque style on the site of the defunct Gothic Chapel sv. Jakuba. It was secularized in 1785 and restored in 1855. It is a tetrahedral structure with rounded corners and two towers at the front. In the nave on the vaulted dome a ceiling painting "God the father with the Angels" (J. A. Schöpf), the altar is decorated with the painting "Christ on the Mount of olives". The chapel is under administration of the Roman Catholic Church but also Byzantine rites are held (Apostolic Exarchate).
