Church of St Bartholomew

From the 19th century, the dome of a Jewish synagogue in pseudo-Moorish style (1882) and the slender tower of a nearby Church of St Bartholomew for Lutherans of the Augsburg Confession made up a distinctive landmark in a view of Teplice on the background of a stretch of the Ore Mountains. With the financial aid of Evangelicals from neighbouring countries, e.g. even from Emperor William I, it was possible to build a Neo-Romanesque church for non-Catholics  based on the plans of a noted European architect F A Stüler (1800–1865) in 1864. The edifice was enhanced by a tower with a clock in 1882. After 1945, it became the Church of Prokop Holý and belonged to the Czechoslovak Hussite Church. At that time, the church acquired what was believed to be the best organ in Central Europe which was transferred from Christ Church (called Green Church) in Trnovany which was torn down in 1972.
