St. Clement's Cathedral in Prague forms part of the outer wall of the Klementinum, the largest and most historic complex of buildings in the Old Town.

It is located near Charles Bridge on Karlova, the Royal Way, which leads from the bridge to the Old Town Square.

St. Clement's Cathedral is a magnificent Baroque structure, built in 1711–1715 by A. Lurago, to the plans of architect F. M. Kaňka. It was erected around the site of a former Gothic church demolished in the 15th century.

The cathedral has a single-aisle with a divided ceiling, which holds the statue of St. Clement by F. I. Weiss. There are other statues by M. B. Braun, paintings by I. Raab, and murals of St. Clement's life placed in the dome by J. Hiebl.

The side altars, the pulpit, the confessional and the organ loft all deserve attention, with sculptures by M.B. Braun from 1716–1721, and a picture of St. Linhart by P.J. Brandl from the year 1716.

Stucco decorations are the work of S. Gőtzler, and the main altar was painted by J. Kramolín.

St. Clement's Cathedral is one of the most important examples of Baroque architecture in Prague, and is currently owned by the Greek Orthodox Church.

It is known for its excellent acoustics. The original Baroque organ from the 18th century is still in situ, and the church is a fine venue for classical concerts, which run throughout the year.

During the winter the seats are heated and have pillows, but it is still advisable to wear warm clothing for the concerts.
