Very beautiful church to visit. The queue for this church was smaller than others in Prague and worth the visit.

This is a very beautiful church that have a green top that characterized well the city of Prague. Inside of this there's a magnificent paint of J.L.Kracker that represents parts of the life of San Nicolas.

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