St. Nicholas Church (Kostel Sv. Mikuláse) Tours and Activities
St. Nicholas Church (Kostel Sv. Mikuláse) is the most famous Baroque church in Prague. Along with the former Jesuit college, it is situated in the center of the city’s Lesser Town Square. A 13th century Gothic parish church stood at the site until the current cathedral took its place in the mid-18th century.
St. Nicholas Church is a superb example of High Baroque architecture and is as impressive from the inside as it is from the outside. The interior was said to have been inspired by the chapel of St. Louis-des-Invalides in Paris, with its intricate frescoes, grand sculptures, and elegant stucco designs making it a striking place to visit.
The church’s main Baroque organ is up to six meters in length and features more than 4000 pipes. In 1787, during his stay in Prague as a guest of the Dušeks, Mozart himself played this very organ. Elsewhere, the church’s 79-meter belfry is directly connected with the building’s huge dome and provides panoramic views across the city from its gallery.
In addition to visiting during the day, guests can attend classical concerts at the church, which are held regularly throughout the year.
