Mozart played the organ in this church, a magnificent example of the "Prague Baroque" period of the 18th century.

The church is very pretty but disappointing they didn't mention that the main fresco is being renovated and under cover until we had paid the entrance fee!

The main ceiling frescoes are being refurbished and are covered. There are some pictures available but the majesty and impact is diluted. The chapels are stunning and the scale and dominance of the altar are breathtaking. We also attended an evening classical recital at this...More

If you're lucky enough to have a Prague wedding, and you're lucky enough to book this place, you kind of don't need to think too hard about any other aspect of the wedding because you just know - it's going to look stupendous. Church is...More

We have seen the church already at our former Prague visits. This time we were not willing to pay an entrance fee, for something, which is just folded and repaired!

St Nicolas Cathedral is a gem amongst churches in Prague. Situated along "Kings way" just across the Charles bridge this stately church offers an impressive & ornate interior. At the moment here is scaffolding lining the whole length of the pews thereby diminishing picture taking...More

The Baroque church is beautiful! Watched an awesome flute concert. Felt like I was in heaven! The place is 3 minutes walk to the tram station.

We happened to be walking around the city and decided to stop in. There was a classical concert there (free) by what appeared to be a college-age orchestra. Perfect acoustics and a flawless performance in an amazing setting!

While the surrounding area for the church is beautiful, the place itself is so-so. The charge of 70 Kronos per person does not seen justifiable.

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

What you are suggesting would be very appropriate for most concerts at St. Nicholas' church. Definitely no shorts.
