The Parish Church of St. Nicholas was here in the Little Quarter as early as 1283. The church at that time was the Church of St. Wenceslas. The initial building of the present day structure was done by a builder by the name of Bos. Later given to Giovanni Domenico Orsi. Construction continued in 1703 with Kristof Dientzenhofer, followed by Kilian Dientzenhofer, his son, and finished in 1755 by Anselmo Lurago. None of the Dientzenhofers were able to see the completion of the church in their lifetimes.
It costs 25KCZ to enter the church and is open from 9am-5pm (4pm in the winter). Concerts are occasionally given in the church as well.
