Mozart played the organ in this church, a magnificent example of the "Prague Baroque" period of the 18th century.

We saw an evening concert at St. Nicholas Cathedral. It was so beautiful inside. Arrive early so you can get the seats up front. Not the most comfortable, but it is an old church! The music was so pretty. Really a highlight of the trip.

This was a wonderful venue with talented musicians. It was a good value for sixty minutes of entertainment, all while looking at the baroque design of the building... bring a jacket it can be cool in late fall.

Prague has some of the most beautiful churches in the world for a country that is not very religious. Former seat of the Holy Roman Empire under Charles IV. Beautiful statues and just huge in size. There is a charge to enter the church, but...More

This is the cathedral across the river from Old Town. It has very impressive frescoes and statuary and is much larger than the Hussite St. Nicholas. There is a small entry fee, but it is worth it.

This is a must to see. It’s just incredible inside. You will not want to miss. . So much decor and history to be learnt about. All the churches are amazing but this is incredible.

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

What you are suggesting would be very appropriate for most concerts at St. Nicholas' church. Definitely no shorts.

Jay, your day 3 seems to be a bit over-packed - all these places are quite big, plus take into account crowds at the ticket offices - it's a peak season. If you are into architecture, you may also want to look up Peterhof, it's a suburb palace with a beautiful park - 30 mins by speed boat from the city center. Mikhailovsky park and palace (near Saviour on the Blood), Marble palace - it's all close to your accomodation and worth a walk around.

as long as you are moderatley dressed you will be fine...however, you will see a range of things..... if you wish to dress up with heels and a more formal dress it will be fine as well. not unsual for women to bring a second pair of shoes.... due to inclimate weather or they have higher heels for the program and don't want to have to walk in them -- I'm sure the female posters will/can give you more specific details
