Kuks




Kuks Hospital is a former convent with a hospital and church of the Holy Trinity  and the family tomb Sporck. The hospital was founded in 1707. Before the hospital is a gallery of allegorical baroque statues of the sculptor Matthias Bernard Braun. Statues were built in 1715-1718. On the one side 12 Virtues and on the another side 12 vices.

  4. The amount of time and effort that must have been spent on places like this is remarkable. Nice post.

  5. The main part of the building is quite attractive. I cannot imagine a hospital being that old. Almost everything here in Canada is much younger than that.

  6. Majestic building. So different from our contemporary concept of what a hospital looks like. The art is also amazing. Thanks for your comment. For some reason it did not appear on my post but I got it via email.
