The main temple of the Czechoslovak Hussite Church was built in the first half of the 18th century. Although there are many magnificent buildings on Old Town Square, the Church of St. Nicholas is hard to miss. Statues, stained-glass windows and frescoes resemble objects of art. In the interior, the organ plays an important role. Around it there are a lot of gilding and small details of decoration. And the crystal chandelier of the temple is a gift from the Russian emperor Alexander II.

Church is good, lots of gold plated statues, designs are intricate but the overall visit experience is far from being a church.

Despite many attempts to explain my side, they insist that I have to purchase another ticket to go inside and get my tumbler.
Dejected, I have no choice but to purchase another ticket. Not even a trace of empathy and understanding for both the ticket custodian and guard. Such an irony despite it being a "church".
It's a really beautiful cathedral in a very busy tourist area. There were lots of small parking spots; it's about lucky to find a parking spot nearby.

If you go downwards it’s more tourist type you see lots of souvenir stores and restaurants. The architecture of the buildings around this cathedral is as beautiful as the cathedral. There were lots of homeless people and beggars. I felt uncomfortable even to buy food and eating out in the open. I ran out my coins to give out. The area is Very crowded. It was nice but too much of the crowd stressed me out.
I am a big fan of viditing Churches, Abbeys, etc and that one stunned me by its beauty.
I even found it nicer than the few Italian ones I visited in Florence, or Bergamo! 😍
Don't miss it if you like Baroque Art!

Beautiful baroque church, the light colours, the bright pink marble, and the amazing frescos in the ceiling make this building one of the most gorgeous churches I've ever seen. I 100% recommend the visit.
Magnificent church with so much gold decoration in the small town of Prague. Do walk up to the second floor and observe more of the ceiling and downwards. At night people walk around the square to and from the Charles Bridge.

It’s very challenging to climb at times [though it starts out so easy and makes you think it’s going to be the whole time!] even though it’s not the tallest tower in Prague, and yet it’s worth it when you do get to the top. Along the way there are decorated quarters for the people that used to call the tower home, with period-appropriate furniture and historical explanations.
And when you get to the top, there are preserved World War-era elements because of the tower’s strategic importance that add a really interesting aspect to the visit and the views.
It is so far the most impressive church i have visited in europe. There is some different atmosphere there that make you stay there couple of hours, following the lights coming from the windows, taking amazing pictures. Must see in Prague for me!

This is possibly the most ornate church in a city of ornate churches. If you have any interest in Baroque architecture, this should be on your list for visiting Prague.

Absolutely gorgeous church and well worth the visit. There's a second floor that allows you to view everything from above. The nun in the ticket booth is not very welcoming though.

For those who love beautiful works of architecture, a visit to this building is a must.
It's not worth the entry ticket. There are hundreds of beautiful churches for free in Prague. By charging an entry fee this one becomes a tourist trap and loses its importance as a religious place. I encourage others not to support them
The best view over the city! When the weather is sunny, the view stretches as far as the horizon. The platform offers a 360 degree panoramic view. There is also a museum inside the tower.
I highly recommend this church to visit to tourists who want to explore Prague, there are too many attractions be side of the building location, and it makes that more interesting for people to spend more time there.

This is probably the most flamboyant church in Prague with lots of ornaments, paintings and sculptures inside. Actually, there are three different St. Nicholas churches in Prague but I think this one is the most sublime one. Definitely worth a visit.
The most incredibly opulent church I've ever visited! Breathtakingly Beautiful!
Nice to see if it's on your route,wouldn't go out of my way it's a church.
A stunning interior and soothing atmosphere. Well worth the small fee to experience.
I have always loved St. Mikulas Church… it’s so beautiful… it almost overpowers Prague Castle above him…

One of the most picturesque churches in Prague, it is impressive how there are details everywhere you look when you're inside.
Very beautiful, you should pay the full price ticket to get inside.
One of the most beautiful churches I’ve ever seen.
A lot of colourful details on the walls as well as lots of different religious paintings.
I definitely recommend to have a look at it.
The entry costs somewhere around 2 euros.
Beautiful, truly historical calm place
The only downside was the price. This church is awesome!
Without doubt, one of the most beautiful baroque church in the world
Beautiful church, worth to visit. Incredible frescoes.
Probably the most beautiful church I have ever visited
A true baroque pearl of Prague. The most dynamic baroque church interior I know. Nice devine services on sunday evenings with great music and good concerts as well.
Pretty amazing baroque cathedral. One of the most iconic buildings in Prague.
Huge historic place
Stunning baroque church offering great views of Prague from the bell tower. Well worth the very cheap admission price and a must visit if you are in the area. A great place to enjoy a quiet, contemplative moment. Highly recommended.

It is one of the MUST visit places in Prague. Amazing paintings and sculptures. It is a real piece of art.
