You pay a small fee to get in. Pretty amazing place. You can't help be impressed by the grandeur of the place, and the statues. The organ was played by Mozart when it was first built back in 1747. They play classical music concerts some evenings as well. They let you up on to one of the balconies, which is... More

Another beautiful church in Prague. Here you have some fantastic churches. For me the best one is the St. Vitus Cathedral, that is a must visit!!

Very small entrance fee is well worth it to see such a beautiful church. Sculptures line the pillars and gorgeous paintings adorn the walls and the ceilings. Certainly one of the most beautiful baroque churches I've seen personally.

Worth a visit, one of the best examples of this type of architecture. Beautiful statues everywhere you look. Your eyes will be challenged to take it all in. Many pics taken here.

There are two churches named after St Nicholas, but the one I preferred was the smaller one just across the square from the clock. There are frequent concerts there,but you are able to enter without paying a fee to enjoy the cool quiet. A beautiful chandelier in the shape of a crown is the main showpiece. Don't forget to buy...

We were there, although a bit late. Not knowing any Czech, we didn't really have a clue what was going on, though Eucharist was obviously familiar. There were not very many fellow worshippers. The church itself is of the Hussite denomination, a Protestant sect. The interior of the church is impressive and worth a look. There are also organ/instrumental recitals... More

Mozart has played in the same Organ that exists until today in the Church when he visited Prague in 1787.

The St Nicholas Church is a church full of light and statues. As there is nothing painted on the windows, you get a lot of light inside. I would say it is worth seeing. There are also some paintings at the first floor you can see if you want. You need to pay an entrance fee to visit it.

Such a pretty church! Although it's clear to see where all the entrance fees are going to, all the gold in the church! :P Very pretty place!
