St. Nicholas Church, Old Town Square


Stunning St. Nicholas Church dominates one corner of the Old Town Square. For many people, this is the most important church in Prague.

St. Nicholas (Kostel svatého Mikuláše) was completed in 1735, but it wasn't until 1901, when the Krenn House in front of it was demolished, that St. Nicholas became visible to the rest of the Old Town Square.

Classical concerts here are popular both for the fine acoustics and for the overall sense of occasion the church creates.
