You can't miss this church on Prague's old square, with its iconic towers. It pretty much defines much of the look of the city. While you can't miss the church, it's easy to miss the entrance. For whatever reason, they built a series of buildings...More

We attended mass here on the Friday and although we don't speak the language it was a beautiful mass and as Catholics we could follow the service. The church is magnificent and a visit is recommended.

Right in the middle of Old Town so easy to access and visit at almost anytime. The interior is classic and well cared for and provided a refuge from the sometimes crazy masses in Old Town Square.

You'll have a better look of the outside from the Old Town Tower but you can come inside free. It opens at 15h, it's closed at midday.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the
medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
