This cathedral is breathtaking. I couldn't believe how beautiful and ornate everything was. One of the most beautiful I've ever seen. Definitely worth the visit.

We went to both, one in old town and the other by the Prague Castle District. Both are beautiful, but the one by the Prague Castle district was a little more interesting.

I am not big on churches but this place is quite stunning,I unfortunately arrived just after a couple of huge tour parties had entered so I just had a quick look around before making my exit, will visit again when It is much quieter.

This is a particularly beautiful church which has been elaborately decorated with a huge amount of gold leaf,and murals,which make it one of Northern Europes most beautiful churches. I have no rerligion,but always find myself in awe of the art on display in these places.

Very lovely paintings on the roof and walls. Small charge to go in but is well worth it. It has an upstairs gallery and let's you look down on the church from a high. Stunning.

I never cease to be amazed by the beautiful architecture and art in these churches and cathedrals -- and how each one is not-to-be-missed, because they are all splendid in their own way. The Church of St. Nicholas is just beautiful, I have some amazing pictures from the second floor which really show the dimensions and depth and character of... More

Equal to many in Rome, incredible side chapels, a masterpiece. A small entry fee which is well worth the pleasure of this stunning church, access the balcony for free and admire the view of the ceilings above and church below...inspirational...5 minutes walk from Charles Bridge at the Castle steps, plenty of shops and bars in the area.

The church looks impressive outside but isn't as remarkable on the inside when compated to the monestery further up the hill above the castle.
