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.

Church Of St Nicholas, Prague Reviews - Write a Review

  • This church is just on the edge of the old town square. Though small it is quite impressive. The interior decoration is impressive and the church in general is maintained quite well considering its age. From time to time live orchestral concerts are held here. Be sure to catch one if they are available!

  • Astonishing church from both outside and inside. The opening hour of the church may differ to the castle. So make sure to get their earlier if you want to check this beautiful church!

  • It's beautiful on the inside as well, after so many places milking tourists with admissions, we had to give it a shot. Access is free but restricted. I just find it hard to believe that they charge people to enter a church, a castle, a cemetery, a tower...

  • Unfortunately they are renovating it and half of the walls cannot be seen. They don't tell you this. And different from other churches for this one you have to pay a tax...

  • Favorite church in Prague, amazing from all viewpoints. Really a city’s gem.
