Neighborhood: 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 modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.

An beautiful but not out of common church. Placed right across the street from Old Town Bridge Tower. Free entry. Not crowded at all at the time of my visit.

Tourist trap
Jul 2021 • Family
Bad concert, make sure you do not book here. A real tourist trap with badly performed music, fully performed from the back of the church .

The church you should not miss
Oct 2019
If you cross the Charles Bridge towards the Old Town direction, you will find yourself facing the church. It is part of the Klementinum complex.

The church is impressive on the outside. The Baroque facade. The large portico with the sandstone structures of the saints is particularly impressive.
The church is equally beautiful inside. The classical concerts are great if the timing works for you.
The church has not one but two organs , recently restored.

Staying in the hotel Four Seasons nearby for part of our trip, we were able to wander around at all hours of the day. The church is beautifully lit at night.

A church on one end of Charles Bridge. I didn't notice it until I looked back when I got to the bridge. It has quite a few statues on the roof which looked interesting.

Very nice church
Dec 2019
This is a very nice church located at the beginning of the Charles Bridge. A lot of people miss it. Entrance is free and it is beautiful inside. They offer very good concerts in the evening. Concerts are not free.

Classical concert at St. Salvatore church - nice ambience; concert sound too faint in mid-section
Oct 2019
Discovering Prague offers abundance of Classical Concerts at many churches, we opted for St. Salvatore near our hotel in town. Locals I talked to pointed out that most concerts on flyers are private venues geared toward tourists and they go to Rudolfinum, National theatre & Municipal house, but the schedule did not work out for us and we wanted to try a Classical concert.

(1) Ambience of this old church is nice.
(2) Price is a little higher than other venues
(3) The church is long and narrow. Czech Orchestra is small and performs in front on the same level as seats. We sat in the mid-tier section (Row 13), and found the sound too faint and far-away; thus, it did not give the full effect of Orchestra and arias. Almost like having to strain to hear.

Bottom line is: it was just OK experience we would not repeat.

Best Location in town for nightly concerts!
Oct 2019
At the foot of the Charles Bridge, the church is excellently located not only for touring but also for the evening concerts. We attended (first row center!) a one-hour performance in the main church of various well known excerpts from Smetana to Verdi to Bach, Mozart and more within the cavernous nave. Our performers were a six-string ensemble, soprano and organ -- unbelievable sounds amplified by the near perfect acoustics of the place. Enjoy!
