An interesting church in Mala Strana. Biggest baroque church of Prague, I'd say second most interesting,after St Vitus. You have to pay extra to enter, which I don't like. But its interior is indeed beautiful. A must!

This "newer" church is impressive in the baroque style. There is a lot better "stuff" to do, but stop in if you have the time.

Unbelievable example of Baroque architecture. Learned something new here - The church exemplified not so much the religion but the power of the church over its state - at least for me.

This boroque style church is the most prominent & distinctive landmark in Lesser Town Square.It caught my eye by its sheer size & the monumental interior.It has white facade decorated with many statues,a pair of steeples & a large octogonal dome.inside one sees frescoes depicting scenes from the lives of Sts. Nicholas & Benedict.

Explosion of Baroque. The gallery is now used as art exhibition. Amazing ceiling and nicely decorated organ case. The visit is worth the entrance fee (70 CZK).

Very intricate interior - keep a sharp eye open for all the masonic symbols embedded in the art that embellishes this church!

An ostentatious orgy of baroque excess, this is a must-see for any fans of religious art & architecture.

Very beautiful!! This is such an ornate church and loved the part we saw. Later I just wanted to go see more and would have had to pay! I'm not going to pay to light candles!

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
