One cannot escape concerts in Prague - classical events are everywhere which is great for us classical enthusiasts. Attended the 1700 hrs concert on the way to Cafe Mozart - not cheap for just over an hour's performance (trumpet and organ). Well attended but some people clearly not used to sitting quietly for this length of time!

Before we married here we took our families to see this church and they were blown away by it's beauty. We had the most fantastic ceremony and the minister was charming. We have visited every year since and it brings back very happy memories. It is beautiful and has a wonderful history.

This is really the most beautiful church in Praha. I love it, esp. the organ inside. It is in the middle of the path from Charles Bridge to Prague Castle.

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.

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
