Glassworks Poděbrady


Jan Santini-Aichel (1677 – 1723) was unique and significant Czech architect of the Italian origin. He is famous for his unique style called Gothic-baroque. He belongs among the personalities who markedly surpassed the horizon of their time.
The completed church building was re-consecrated in the year 1708. Santini coped with the composition of unusual altitude and depth proportions of the church space by means of the accentuated rhythm of walls and vaults. The baroque conversion shows in the design of the spiral staircases and the elements of the altar area. The extraordinary personal acquaintance with the design and the architecture of the medieval cathedral type that Santini experienced in Sedlec, became a constant inspiration for his further creation and the incorporation of the Gothic and the baroque grew into a predominant phenomenon attending him till the end of his life.
