I didn't go inside this church, merely admired it from the outside. It is an attractive building on a pretty street, and is, therefore, a great photo opportunity. I'd recommend walking past this sight to any travellers who happen to be in the area.

My hotel was overlooking this beautiful baroque church, just a few steps away from the old town square. I was on business, and unfortunately I could not find the time to visit the church. Next time perhaps.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
