Wheelchair access - YES Vast dimly lit interior filled with dark and dust-laden devotional sculptures. There was no way of knowing whether the burst of quite heavenly organ music was played by an unseen organist or the switch of a tape-recorder.

Totally free and well worth popping in. The church is stunning and never very crowded. Never seen such strong baroque architecture in a church, free access to all parts of the church as well. The ceiling is painted and pretty incredible! Don’t miss it!

A real treasure of Baroque art with Gothic elements from the original building ... I had the honour of attending the commented tour led by one of the minority brothers and inspecting places that are not normally shown to visitors. An unforgettable experience.Thank you.

This is by far the most beautiful church in Prague. Its ornate style is the epitome of the Baroque movement and is a must see when in the city. The best thing is it's not swarmed by tourists. When I was there, there were about...More
