This is a lovely church with very interesting statues and you can climb up to the gallery to get a closer look at the painted ceiling. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

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!!

The exterior of this cathedral is quite special but the interior painted ceiling is one of the finest i have seen. Be sure to climb the 60 stairs up to the gallery in order to gain a closer view.

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.

Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
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

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.
