Its a church, but for such a small church its very lovely inside. Some of the information hanging on the walls as you enter on the left was very interesting. We did not go for the concerts.

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... More

This church is beautiful inside and out. They have concerts here in the evenings. I did not go to any of the concerts but the church is soooo beautiful well worth a stop.

Nice to see a church without the abundance of crucifixion scenes. I went to a performance there: a soloist and the organ. It was an uplifting and beautiful experience.

We spent a whopping 500Kr to see an early evening performance in this great hall. The programme consisted of a soprano soloist and an organist, both of whom were excellent, playing pieces from Vivaldi and Bach to Dvorak and Schubert. There were only a few people at the performance, all tourists. Strangely the performance took place on a high balcony... More

Our first day. Disoriented, jet lagged, a bit grumpy, we wandered into this beautiful cathedral and soaked up the late afternoon light playing off the statues. And a rare treat! An opera singer and a violin concert. This put us in the right frame of mind and made us feel welcome and entranced.

Easy to visit and doesn't take much time to enjoy it. If for nothing else, go to see a very different church than St. Vitus. St. Nicholas is in a completely different style and scale, and has beautiful and colorful frescoes, and lots of shiny gold -- very lovely and completely different than other churches I've visited in Europe.
