This is a relatively small church compared with the other churches in Prague such as St. Vitus, and the two St. Nicholas. Nonetheless, it is a beautiful church with pictures decorating the array of columns that extends from the back of the church to the...More

There are hordes of tourists walking past this church, but the interior is always empty. This is because there is no sign outside which says the admission fee (because there isn't one) so they think it's always closed. The auditory tranquility allows one to enjoy...More
