Church Of St Nicholas - Review
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
This is definitely my favorite church in Prague! You could literally spend the 100 years, it took building it, to admire it's total beauty. There are ceilings painted with matching colors, whole stories told by statues and a altar that is breathtaking. Also they, in contrast to other churches nowadays, did not limit the access to the benches or gallery. You should definitely plan a short (or better: longer) stop here at St Nicholas when visiting the Westside of Prague.
Really beautiful church. At the moment a part is under restructuring but it still possible to admire the entire beauty of each portrayed. The entrance cost is quite cheap and if you are a student, showing something to prove it, you will receive a reduction.
Church is very beautiful with golden decors and marble sculptures everywhere. except it's interior is under construction and renovation. It would've been a 5 star site. But regardless, you should not miss it.
It is a beautiful church. But in general really sad to pay to enter into a Church and to have limited opening hours in the church in Prague
One of nice & beautiful church in the city with restaurants and bars around it. In the attractions patch and just don't miss it.
