Photographer's Note

Jan Santini Aichel, one of the most famous Baroque architects working in Czechia, designed not only spectacular castles like Karlova Koruna. This small chapel of St Mary in Kourim was built in 1727 according his project too, even though it was four years after Santini's death.

Unfortunately, the photo does not show well a pentagonal ground-plan of the chapel -- quite typical for Santini, who liked uncommon and bizarre shapes.
