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!

Beautiful exterior of church. Lot of beautiful religious statues inside. Church is in Town Hall Square. Two churches with the same name in Prague. Worthwhile a visit.

We visited St Nicholas' church after going to St Vitus' so I believe that this is the best. It has a great upper floor gallery with close up views of the paintings on the ceilings/walls. Must visit if in Prague, located in Lesser town. Fee was about 2-3euros.

Two Churches of Saint Nicholas in Prague: The Church of St. Nicholas in the Lesser Town has a baroque grandeur. The Church of St. Nicholas in the Old Town has a charming simplicity.

A lovely church with a beautiful organ and lovely ceiling frescoes. Go up to the gallery to see the view from up there. It is enchanting.

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
