Long Description:

Parish Church of St. Anthony of Padua was built in romantic Neo-Gothic style in 1909 thanks to money collection of Ruprechtice and Katerinky citizens supported by great contribution of local enterpreneur J. Salomon. The church's steeple, 47 m tall, is important and well visible architectonic feature of Ruprechtice... Architects were Max Kühn and Heinrich Fanta from Liberec. The church was consecrated by Litomerice's bishop Josef Gross in September 18th, 1910..

After WWII - during communist regime, church was desecrated and served as county's archive depository, but after Velvet Revolution in 1989 it was returned to the Catholic Church. Reconstruction (1993-1995) and ceremonial re-consecration in June 1994 opened new and hopefully brighter new history of this nice building...
