Located in Lesser Town (Malá Strana), the St. Nicholas Church (not to be confused with the Church of St. Nicholas in Old Town Square) is well visited for its stunning baroque architecture, intricate frescoes and classical sculptures.
Although the site of the church dates back to the 13th century, the construction of the church that stands today wasn't completed until the 1760s. Here, visitors will find one of the largest frescos in Europe as well as an organ system with more than 4,000 pipes that was once played my Mozart. Along with being an active parish, the church hosts more than 200 concerts per year.
Recent visitors said the small admission fee is well worth it to marvel at the beautiful interiors and say it's a can't-miss attraction. Others suggested checking the schedule to see if you can coincide your visit with one of the church's concerts.
Admission costs 100 korun (about $4.50) for adults and 60 korun (about $2.65) for children and students. Children younger than 10 enjoy free admission. You can visit the church daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (until 4 p.m. from November to January. In February, you can also visit until 5 p.m. from Friday through Sunday). The church holds regular Mass every Sunday at 8:30 a.m., with no admission charge. The Church of St. Nicholas is a short walk from Prague Castle and can be reached via tram.
