There are hordes of tourists walking past this church, but the interior is always empty. This is because there is no sign outside which says the admission fee (because there isn't one) so they think it's always closed. The auditory tranquility allows one to enjoy...More

Is stunningly ornate! I'll need to read more later since all the information inside is in Czech! Is incredible what was built with less technology, compared to nowadays!

Truly a wonderful hidden gem in the old town. The entry is quite humble. Most people walk right on by. But I went in, curious. Inside is a beautiful medevial church. Spectacular altar. Beautiful ceiling paintings. I wasnt able to go beyond the foyer area.

One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is

in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
