The beautiful St. Nicholas Church at the Old Town Square was completed in 1735, and replaced a parish church mentioned in records dating back to 1273.
Inspired by the chapel of St. Louis-des-invalides in Paris, St. Nicholas is built in the baroque style. The delicate stucco decoration was executed by Bernardo Spinetti, and the frescos by Peter Adam the Elder. The sculptures are by Antonin Braun.
Today’s Church of St Nicholas is one of the most valuable Baroque buildings north of the Alps. Construction lasted approximately one hundred years, and three generations of great Baroque architects – father, son and son-in-law – worked on the church: Krystof Dientzenhofer, Kilian Ignac Dientzenhofer and Anselmo Lurago. The venue is also used for some exciting concerts on select occasions.

Great views of the city from the top of the church. There is a little side entrance that is not very visible and most people tend to miss it. It’s 100 CZK per person but definitely worth it!
It is very nice on the outside. Didnot go inside because there is a fee to go. I wonder if they have mass there?
Simple but atmospheric. Great and comfortable location makes it into a must see along the way
There is a sad history in this place whereas people were thrown from the windows in the name of God some decades ago. The decorations are very good, the paintings in the upper deck are looking very new and vivid. You have to pay 100 Sek to enter, but the place is really good.
One of the most beautiful churches in Prague. totally worth 100 cronas. Also has viewing tower that a must, view if the city will take your breath away
