Park called Pod Kotnovem - Hosted By

Not review yet

Almost in the shadow of Kotnov Tower and Bechyňská Gate there is a park called Pod Kotnovem. The park was founded between the years 1969 and 1973 in the place of an old town cemetery.Celebrities were buried there as late as the 19th century; for example Josef Němec, the husband of the famous Czech fairy-tale writer Božena Němcová, who spent the last years of his life with his son Karel, a gardener and teacher at the Provincial College of Economics. On June 21, 2017, the statue of Defiance by the sculptor J. V. Dušek was ceremoniously unveiled and returned to his grave. In the middle, on a wide path through the park, there is a monument to the poet and priest, Josef Vlastimil Kamarýt. People prayed for the dead in the cemetery chapel. The chapel was first mentioned in sources in the year 1388 in connection with the noble family of Ústí who had two altars installed there. The current appearance of the chapel is a result of several Baroque alterations to a formerly Gothic structure. It was burned down by Prussian soldiers in 1744, and then rebuilt for the last time. Nowadays, concerts and various cultural events are held there.

The Church of the Apostles Philip and James, now owned by the city of Tábor, is the oldest sacral building in the city. Since 1997, the church has been leased to the Old Catholic parish village in Tábor for its ceremonies. Regular Old Catholic services are held in the church every Sunday from 9:00 am and on other liturgically significant days (Easter, Christmas).
