Stadtkirche (Bayreuth)

Stadtkirche is the largest church in the city. The oldest part of the this Gothic basilica was constructed in the 12th and 13th century. However during the Hussite war its was destroyed by the Hussites in 1437 during their struggle against the Roman Catholic Church. Soon it was reconstructed as a present massive three aisled structure. During the Thirty Years' War in 1618- 48 the city was hit by military actions. One of the cannons hit the window in the choir. Luckily it didn't explode and thus the structure was preserved. Today it undergoes major restoration. This includes underground royal royal burial crypt and other chambers under the floor.
