Baroque church of Saint Trinity was part of the abolished Monastery of Trinity Brothers. Today the building owns the Slovakian Greek Catholic Church. The recording captures the end of the beautiful musical celebration, where the ambient sounds penetrate from outside. The Church stands on the ancient holy location of the Jewish cemetary. The Socialist Goverment confiscated the church in the end of 70ies in connection with the planned metro rebuilding of the environment. The attempt to demolish it didn't finally succeeded. Recent reconstruction saved the ruined building.In the nearby old metal and old paper shop Bohumil Hrabal worked in 50ies.still in construction
