Although this Augustinian church is beautiful in itself, attending Mass here on Saturday evening was a true pleasure. It was National Filipino Day and a Filipino choir sang. They were wonderful. Although there is an old, beautiful church on every corner in Prague, most have but one Mass on Sunday. As we had a tour on Sunday morning, we were... More

This is one of those must visit locations of Prague- the absolute beauty of the internal architecture takes your breath away. It is magnificent and i agree with previous comments that this has some of the most beautiful frescos

I lived in Prague for 6 years and miss St. Thomas the most! Father William has a Ph.D. in history, is very loving and open minded. I really miss his homilies! The community is very diverse and friendly - Czechs, Americans, Britons and people from various African countries to give you an idea. I highly recommend attending mass here. They... More

A beautiful little church that has wonderful frescos. It looks closed but if you continue down to the end of the little lane there is an opening. From what I could make out admission is free but they would like you to try their order's beer and drink it in the garden when you are done with the visit. We... More

We enjoyed Mass in this church while in Prague, and the community was very nice. The church is beautiful Baroque--bright and airy. Rebuilt in the 18th century, this old church actually has roots to the 12th century. If you are taking in the sights of Prague, it is worth a moment or two to stop in and admire this beautiful...

I go to St. Tomas regularly when I'm in Prague, and I can say that the community is very welcoming and friendly. Plus, the church is amazingly beautiful inside. Try to see the historic St. Dorothy chapel, the oldest part of the monastery. Most of the parishioners in the English community are foreigners who go home for major holidays like... More

I went to Christmas mass at St. Thomas. Most of the people attending were Americans. It does not represent Americans in general, but children made noises during the mass, and people did not shake hands with me, who was obviously a foreigner. And this is Christmas eve! Staffs were not really friendly, either. So does this reflect the atmosphere of... More

This is not a very prominent church, with its entrance on a short dead-end street, and too close to the St. Nicholas cathedral in Mala Strana (which is magnificent) to be noticed. However, once inside, it is attractive, it has a beautiful pulpit and angels beside the altars, plus frescoes painted on the ceiling of the nave.

We attended mass in the chapel of St Thomas - the chapel is from 1245 and mass was a wonderful experience. We also visited the church and it was just lovely.
