A very beautiful church in Baroque style. It was made to impress the Catholics , and now impress everybody who visit it. Incredible golden statues, decorations and the walls made from marble, and the paintings and view from the second floor. You must visit during visit of Prague.

Worth a tour - with all its baroque golden decorations. We had a very good concert there as well. Location is central and easy to reach with Tram 22.

St. Nicholas in Malo Strano is one of my favorite large baroque churches, rivalling Vierzehnheiligen, Vienna's Karlskirche, and the abbey church in Ottobeuren. Its extensive decoration gives an endlessly playful impression, unsuitable perhaps for a religious building but utterly delightful. The entry free of 70 crowns is on the high side, but a church needs maintenance, and a church like... More

The kids were amazed by the painted ceilings, statues and golden everythings. Was great to be able to climb the stairs to the second floor and have a look from above.

Beautiful timeless arcitechture at its best. Surrounded by well tucked in cafes and restaurants. A good stop to take the weight off and reflect on the majesty of the Prague castle on the way to Charles bridge

The Church near the Castle was absolutely stunning. It's hard to believe how vibrant everything is given the age. The light streaming in through the stained glass windows is amazing. I would rank this as one of the 2 or 3 most beautiful in Europe.

Personally I am not impressed about the baroc style and therefore my opinion about this church is not fully positive, but I must say that the quality of the paintings and the overall objective impression cannot be negative. In the balcony there is a nice organ, played also by Mozart. Pls note that there is an entrance fee.
