With so many big and impressive churches in Prague, it is easy to overlook this gem tucked away in Charles Square. It is grand in its own way and the church interior is beautiful. The bonus is that there are hardly any tourists and so...More

Maybe the most beautiful church in Prague. Astonishing playing of organ just when visiting. Great paintings and very special shrine for appearance of Saint Mary in Lourdes.

A beautiful church, right in the middle of Charles Square. Shows the past and the present of the Jesuits' contribution to Czech culture.

This church is a mammoth of a building which dominates Karlovo Námēsti. It is a festival of baroque too. There is no entry fee and little information, but interesting to take a look inside if you are in the area.

Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square
represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of
the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the
square watches over your spending spree in countless
shops and retail stores lining the entire square,
which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping
street. When tired or broke, you can explore the
city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town

Good day. Yes, they have musical accompaniment at some masses but no choir singing unlike Russian Orthodox churches.
