Long Description:

Depicted small Renaissance bell tower served originally to the Renaissance Church of the Most Holy Trinity (Nejsvetejší Trojice) in Ceský Brod.

The belfry, constructed before 1571, is simple prismatic two-storied tower with boarded secont storey and hip roof. The first storey originally served as morgue, the second was bell storey. Nowadays former belfry serves as public club "Zvonice" (The Belfry) operated by civic association "Leccos"; club is opened for public from Monday to Friday (15:30-18:00).


Beautiful and historically valuable Renaissance Church of the Most Holy Trinity belongs to the Evangelical Church of Czech Brethren parish in Ceský Brod. This simple single-nave cemetery church was constructed behind the city walls during years 1560-1562, after liquidation of cemetery at St. Gotthard in town's centre. The wall surrounding the church with entrance gate was built in 1566 and the church's nave was raised in 1613. The church was completely reconstructed in 1953 and serves from this year as prayer house of Evangelical Church of Czech Brethren (Ceskobratrská církev evangelická).
