Kostel sv. Mikuláše, Prague

4.5
An outstanding example of Baroque architecture in Central Europe, Kostel sv. Mikuláše dominates Prague's skyline with its iconic green dome. Constructed in the early decades of the 18th century, the structure replaced a Gothic church also dedicated to Saint Nicholas. The building's star attractions are its frescoes, sculptures, and a 4,000-pipe organ, reportedly played by Mozart in 1787. The ceiling frescoes, created by Johann Lukas Kracker, include an image of a Jesuit monk who, despite repeated injunctions not to do so, hid behind one of the columns and secretly watched the artist at work. Try to spot him by standing directly under the domed ceiling or by climbing to the church's viewing gallery. By using our Prague road trip planning website , you can arrange your visit to Kostel sv. Mikuláše and other attractions in Prague.

  • In Lesser town, across Carl's Bridge, an amazing Baroque/Rococo church. Beautiful marble, massive statues, almost over the top preaching stool, and possibility to actually go up to the gallery to get....  more »
  • Very nice church that you should visit if you are in old town. Free entry. Crowded, but no lines. We enjoyed it.  more »

  • Located on Old Town Square, entry to this church is free. Well worth a visit to read about the Hussite (Christian) denomination and see the different and subdued (when compared with the lavishly decorated Catholic churches) interior layout. The unusual chandelier alone is worth a look. This church also hosts musical performances in the evening.
  • One of the most beautiful churches of Prague. There is ticket to visit the church. Ticket is cheaper for students like in many other places. It is really worth to buy the ticket and see the interiors of the church. One can also visit the art gallery on the top floor of the church.
