Interior very interesting. Exterior mostly covered up with the restorations going on. Attended a concert with harpsichord/oboe/organ there. Now that was worth it. Relaxing and you can check out the interior at leisure.

There is a small fee to enter at this time, so no longer free if it was before, but worth the cost. Small but lovely baroque church.

A very nice church, not too impressive from the outside, but very much decorated inside. If you already been to st. Vitus - you'll be disapointed, so make sure to visit this one first...

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

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.
