WOW! Wonderful church in a great setting and it is so beautiful inside. We were lucky to see inside, when we returned on the Sunday morning it was closed.

We very nearly missed the most beautiful piece of architecture in the whole of Prague. This beautiful cathedral was tucked away with little street appeal but once ensconced within the bowels of this Church, the real world of the tourist hustle and bustle tends to just dissipate. A very ornate and totally exquisite, awe inspiring church that totally took our... More

The interior's lovely. Tall, airy and light, with a huge, dramatic painting of... More

When we visited the chuch was under renovation and emptied out, so we could only admire its exterior. Together with the city named anno 1297. Rebuilt after a fire in late-Gothic style 1518-1535. The church burned down again in the 17th century, 22 december 1649 its reconstruction was completed in its current Baroque appearance. In its facade three statues: St.... More

We entered just because it was right in front of us on our way around the square and I think it is worth seeing, even if I am not the best person for judging, because I dont really like churches..but why not to enter it and have a look if is it standing in front of you :) I bealive... More
