Vejprnice, in the district of Plzen-north is a town approximately 8 kilometers west of the city of Plzen. The size of it is 1029 hectars and it is 325 meters above the sea level. It is located on both sides of the Vejprnice brook. First knowledge of Vejprnice is from the 10th century. You will find more information about its history here ( only in czech ). In this town, you can observe the baroque church of St. Vojtech from years 1722-1726 with fresco's of J. Hager and J. Redelmayer in a ship and F. J. Lux in choir. Interesting thing about this church is that the whole structure is oriented towards the west.
There are only two other European places that have this rarity. In this church you can observe the statues from L. Wildman of Plzen from the first half of the 18th century. The St. Vojtech church bridge from the 18th century is connected with the new reconstructed baroque rectory. The cross in the nearby quarry reminds us of the execution of 29 people by Heydrich's men in the year of 1942. Vejprnice is a birthplace of Jacob Husnik, inventor of new light. In the nearby area it is worthwhile to travel few kilometers to see the ruins of the castle Buben, whose history is closely connected with the history of Vejprnice. Else, if you like, you can visit a close-by center of west Bohemia - the city of Pilsen (Plzen).
