Once You're in - WOW!

Can be a challenge to get in (go through the shopping area). But once in it is stunning. On a sunny day, the gold glistens. Oh and don't forget the Infant.

Gold monuments adorn this beautiful church. Beautiful architecture and a huge altar. Well worth a visit while you are in the Old Town square.

Very interesting place. The top of the tower is providing a nice view old the city. Lift and access to disable. Cheap price..The view in Winter or summer are still nice from the top.

The "front" of this church is the oddest I have ever seen, the first few stories are blocked by buildings in front of it that apparently pre-date the church, which was slotted in behind them. But the upper parts are elegant, and the interior is very attractive. We could not get a good tour of the interior (there was a... More

Gothic architecture is so captivating, and alluring, mystic, with the tall spires, and peaks, gargoyles.

This has been an important church in this part of Prague since the 14th century. It has a gothic style whose lower front facade is obscured by buidings attached to the front. The interior is not wholly gothic. Of interest is that the organ is from the 17th century and is an important extant organ of that time. It is... More

Adds greatly to the views in the entire Old Town Square area. Beautifully lit up at night. Stop and take a good look at this fine attraction in a very busy area of Prague.

So we bought the tickets to view the top view from clock towers and believe me, it worth every penny to have a decent look of the top Gothic view of the church from ten top. Also, from the photography perspective, this top view will provide and eye candy view of this city!!

The exterior of the church is visually unique and adds greatly to the charm of the Old Town Square. Inside did not impress me hugely though it is still attractive. One word of advice though. The entrance is not so easy to find, you have to go through what appearsto be a little shopping arcade to find the way in.... More
