It was 700 years ago in 1319, when the roof was erected above the choir of the Franciscan church in Eger. This is the oldest known dendrochronologically dated roof in the territory of the Czech Republic.
The roof structures preserved in Cheb are the most important assemblage of this kind of historic timber constructions dated from the middle ages to the mid-20th century in The Czech Republic.
The idea of the reconstruction of the church towers arose with the development of the foundation fund. The aim was to heal the scar on the town panorama by one of the last air attacks in 1945
The grave of the professor of German culture at Prague University, Ferdinnad Detter, is marked by a unique tombstone built by the sculptor Adolf Mayerl. He was born in Cheb, the son of a well-known local potter. He studied at a ceramics school in Teplice and became a master pupil of J. V. Myslbek at the Prague Academy.
