Architecture of the St. George´s Basilica

When you look at the St. George´s Basilica, the most noticeable are the two white prismatic towers. They were added to the basilica in the 12 th century, when it was rebuilt. The narrow northern tower was called Eve and the bigger southern one was called Adam.

The western frontage with the typical brick-red facade is Early Baroque, from the 17 th century. It is decorated with statues of the founder Vratislav I. and Mlada, the first abbess of the near convent. The southern entrance from Jirska street has a Renaissance tympanum, where the fight of St.George with a dragon is depicted.
