What an incredible place, a real must-see of Prague. The richness and sheer beauty of the main chapel, with its baroque decoration and relics, are matched by the odd but very spiritual feeling of the famous Nazarene House in the courtyard. Make sure you go...More

I am not even remotely religious, but this place was great. Some amazing chapels and relics. Combined with a trip to the castle it makes for a VERY full day of sightseeing, but is definitely worthwhile.

Your experience in Prague will never be complete if
you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched
from the west to the north, provide spectacular views
of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone
