This edifice is unlike many other religious sites in the world, having a unique and unmistakable exterior. The square outside is always active with almost a party-like atmosphere.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
