Great place - Baroque master piece - do not miss! The entry fee was 70 CZK but the biggest let down were so limited opening hours - all churches in Prague are already closed at 4pm!

I first discovered this church when introduced to it by a Czech "Praguer" who is a business associate. It is in the Lesser Town after crossing the Charles Bridge from the Old Town, and entered via steps at the front. You can't see much as you enter and pay a very nominal amount at the kiosk, then turn the corner... More

This beautiful church is well worth the entry fee if you wish to spend time roaming around. It is similar in style to others but the organ is quite special.

If you've visited other churches and cathedrals around Europe like La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona and Notre Dame in Paris, this is measly in comparison. Enter if you please, but I would recommend skipping this and pay the cheap admissions into Strahov Monastery, a short tram ride away to see its beautiful library and taste the beer/cheese made on-site.

Please be aware there are TWO churches in Prague with the same name. This review is for the Church of St Nicholas in the Lesser Town (just over the Charles Bridge on the way towards the Castle) and is not the church shown on TripAdvisor's page. The building of this church, which is described as one of the most valuable... More
