On the outside it doesn't look so big, but once you enter it, it is truly amazing. Really worth the walk till there. Don't miss it.

Close to the Old Town (astronomical clock) square. It is not very easy to find, but it has got a very impressive interior and it is most certainly worth a visit! Please note that it is not open all day. Also you can not enter for a touristical visit during worship services.

Situated between Charles Bridge and the Prague Castle, I visited in the evening for an Organ Wednesday, before which the audience were allowed entry. Those 15ish minutes provided enough sightseeing (lower floor only) time for me. The opulence to square meter is extremely high, full of statues and ornate alters. A place where you almost don't know what to photo.... More

There are two St Nicholas churches in Prague, this one and the one at the Old Town Square. This one is the Roman Catholic one you will see on the way to the Prague Castle. It is built in the Baroque style and was completed in 1755. You have to pay an entry fee to visit this church but it's... More

NOT TO BE MISSED! Simply breathtaking. The altar and decor is WAY beyond anything I could have ever imagined. A great example of Baroque architecture and worth a few minutes of your time when in Prague.

St. Nicholas is one of the best churches in Prague, and definitely the best Baroque church. The interior is so stunning to see, as it's filled with amazing statues. There's an entrance fee, but it's not too high and the church is generally not crowded. Be sure to go upstairs!

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.
