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.

Walked into the church and the first thing I noticed is that it's very similar to ones in Italy in terms of architecture. It's very impressive.

We went to the market to buy a few souvenirs, and accidently stumbled across the Church. It's right next to the Harley Davidson showroom and is a real impressive structure. It's a beautiful place from inside. As my luck would have it, the battery of...More

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

of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
