St. Nicholas' Church, Prague: 144 reviews and 276 photos
This church is a not to overlook landmark at the northwest corner of the Old Town square. Originally built as church of a Benedictine Abbey by famous architect K. I. Dientzenhofer 1732 - 35 it serves in our days as a concert hall mostly.
The church is an excellent example of the catholic Baroque as it is to find in Southern Germany, Austria and Bohemia. The facade is richly decorated by statues (M. B. Braun), the interior is much too much stucco works and dramatic (dark) frescos for my taste. At least you need good (sun)light to get a good impression - and you'll be surprised how small it is.
Pics 2-4 show the interior.
Address: Malostransky kostel Sv. Mikulase.
Directions: Old-Town Square
