“Best church in prague”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

We visited St Nicholas' church after going to St Vitus' so I believe that this is the best. It has a great upper floor gallery with close up views of the paintings on the ceilings/walls.

Must visit if in Prague, located in Lesser town. Fee was about 2-3euros.

A lovely church with a beautiful organ and lovely ceiling frescoes. Go up to the gallery to see the view from up there. It is enchanting.

“Baroque masterpiece - St Nicholas Lesser Town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

There are two St Nicholas Church's in Prague. This is the more impressive of the two and sits in Lesser Town Square, the other is in the Old Town. It makes a nice place to rest your legs if you are about to walk up to the castle. Entry is 70kc and you aren't allowed to take photos, which is slightly annoying because it has one of the most beautiful interiors in all Prague. The high baroque artworks covering the walls and ceiling were begun in 1673 and continued for the next 80 years by the Jesuits. The ceiling has a spectacular fresco which gives a 3D illusion that it disappears up into heaven. The organ is one of Prague's finest and was once played by Mozart. There are concerts most nights starting 6pm and lasting an hour, they cost 500kc.
