Lovely old church, in the heart of the city. Because it was Christmas time, there were services going on throughout the evenings. There was no entry charge.

Simple but beautiful church. The vaulting inside is exquisite. But for me the fun is found in the exterior sculptures (which are few) that are explained by local folk stories. Unique!

Great place with outstanding atmosphere. Forme lot better than "Petrov" cathedral. White interior seems so clean and innocent and also the tour to the tower is amazing. I am not religios but this place is a symbol of peace for me.

This Gothid style church is simple yet beautiful. It has been recently renovated and it e looks brand new on the inside with the stone all cleaned up. A worthwhile stop while walking through old town.

Maybe in memory of a previous painted pink tank by David Cerny in Prague in April 1991 to protest against Soviet regime

Beautiful 16th century Gothic church where the believers kept a positive faith: not one of darkness and fear for hell, but one of lightness and hope of going to heaven. Inside it feels like you are lifted up as bright rays of sun fall unhindered...More

It is very nice church in the city, one of the oldest ones with lovely interior. It is located close to the main square and below it, there is an ossuary you may visit too.

No, churches do not need any air conditioning. Even in the hottest summer the temperature in our churches is very pleasant.
