This church is located in Lesser Town and 10 minutes walk from Mala Strana Tower. There is an entrance fee. We spent about 1.5 hours in the church to enjoy its beauty. Perhaps this is the most beautiful Baroque church in Prague with over the...More
Probably the most beautiful church I have ever seen! Although they all have their own uniqueness, I was particularly drawn to this church more than St. Vitus Cathedral and other churches in Italy and Germany. The statues, gold, ceilings, altar, everything has such detail and...More
It’s said that Count Wenceslaus Kolowrat-Liebsteinsky donated his entire estate that was worth 178,500 gold talents for the decoration of this church. Not sure what that sum is today, but it’s certainly money well spent. The interior decorations are some of the finest example of...More
My friend and I attended a recital here one evening and thoroughly enjoyed it. The church is lovely inside and has the largest most ornate chandelier I've ever seen. I think there's recitals on most nights at 5pm and 8:30pm and you can buy tickets...More
We spend a month in Rome and thought we had seen the most beautiful churches. Prague's many outstanding churches challenged that thinking. There are two St. Nicholas churches in Prague and both worthy of a visit.
I admit the St.Vitus is incredible with it's vast size and gothic architecture, but this church in fabulous Mala Strana equally - if not even more so, blew me away by it's beauty both inside and out. Well worth a visit!!
This beautiful Baroque church, in the Lesser Town of Prague, was built between 1704-1755 and is the largest of Prague's churches founded by the Jesuits. The interior is decorated with statues, paintings and frescoe.
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch
shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
There are 2 St Nicholas churches but both are Roman Catholic.The one in Malostranke Nam which has a wonderful interior whilst the one next to the Old Town Square has a lovely facade but is mainly used for concerts.
