Church Of Saint Ludmila Reviews & Ratings
Probably my favorite church in Prague. I visit whenever in the neighborhood for a half hour of repose. The restrained architectural style is calming. The gold clock faces in both steeples are the only ornaments, and set in the dark stone, striking. The park in front of it is a delightful spot.
The church is magnificent with incredibly fine interior. Definitely worth admiring. Great location: beautiful part of the city, good access by public transport and several good restaurants around. Enjoy!
The neo-gothic church is a church built by public subscription and support from the Prague 2 City Council. Designed by Mocker, the architect who designed the nave to complete Saint Vitus cathedral, decorated by works of the leading Czech artists of the time , the church along with its Grand Organ are are treasures and both are inscribed into the National Register of Monuments of the Czech Republic.
Nice and peaceful place, the front garden is located at central Praha, each road directly to sections of city.
We were on the 22 tram route so we got off to have a look. Worth a look if you are passing.
