“Historic overload”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

This church is without a doubt the most heavily decorated of all the churches we've been to in Prague. There was no square inch that didn't have some kind of sculpture or ornament. The place was loaded with them. There's not much words can do for you here. Just go see it!!
