All reviews beautiful interior organ concert baroque style old town square no photography virgin mary take pictures couple of hours walking tour mummified legend frescoes photos sv mass macabre postcards
If you want to see a real Baroque church then you have to go to St James, but check out the opening times as it is only open a couple of hours a day. The outside initially appears relatively plain but gives a hint of...More
From the outside, it just looks like a simple chapel, but the moment you go inside you will be bowled over by what meets you.
We went to see the Thief's Arm hanging up inside, another of our 'weird' things to see in Prague. Yes...More
We specifically attended 10:30 Sunday Mass in order to enjoy the organ concert afterwards. We spent much time attempting to discover when the concert was scheduled, including the church's website and inquiring at our hotel. Luckily, we arrived early for Mass and enjoyed the end...More
Amazing interior in a church. It’s a prize. You can’t take pictures on the inside but that standard. They have most of the church roped off so you can access it you can just really go to the entrance and look into the church.
Beautiful interior decorations and fresco beyond your expectations. Do pay attention to the “the arm” -- do some search on Google first and look for a black object hanging above the entrance door after you enter the church. And do notice they close in noon...More
We were wandering around when it began to rain. Looking for somewhere to stop for a few minutes, we saw people exiting this church. We hadn’t read anything about it but went in initially just to stay dry. Much to our amazement, we were met...More
ASTONISHINGLY BEAUTIFUL CATHEDRAL! While it is a little underwhelming on the outside, the inside is amazing!
There are plentiful of alters, statues and plaques decorated around the church. The most i’ve seen so far.
One thing is, no photography is allowed but i couldn’t resist...More
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!

To the best of my knowledge, golden lane is part of a ticket which also includes other things like Vladislav hall, St George Basilika, Daliborka Tower, St Vitus Cathedral (the free entry doesnt allow you all the way to the alter etc) , its probably worth seeing at least some of of those things, you cold do the Basilika and Vladislav Hall in 20 min each I guess..... There is also a ticket which icldes more things but what i mentioned is the "smallest" ticket. Try to see the Municipal Hall,...More
I wish to visit the Campostela Church of St. James (13 Replies)
From PDX, it is a terrible arduous journey to Galicia (21 hours with 2 stops), so I'd like to break up the trip (for example, perhaps fly to Paris, rest up, then then to Galicia by train, is this possible? Or I could also pick another popular city but would appreciate a suggestion from a member. Thank you.

Where is PDX????? There are may direct flights to Santiago de Compostela. Galicia also has tow other airports one in Vigo the other in A Coruña Alternately fly to Portugal (Oporto) and train or bus into Galicia.
Brno Ossuary (4 Replies)
Does anyone have any information about when the Ossuary in Brno under the Church of St. James will open to the public. I know, sometime in 2012.. although that date has been pushed back several times in the past few years. Has anyone actually been to the site? Several travel blogs suggest that you may be able to see part of it at this point.. anyone know if that is true? Has anyone tried to visit this site.. what's up with this place?
