Local from Prague

/Church/ This masterpiece built by the architects Dientzenhofer father and son is one of the most beautiful Baroque churches in Central Europe. With its majestic dome, its bell tower and its undulating facade with dynamic lines, the church dominates the whole district. Inside, a vast fresco, gigantic sculptures, golden altarpieces, countless paintings, wooden decorative details.

A large, baroque style church in the corner of the Old Town Square in Prague. It impresses in scale and design and is worth a look. Free to enter but it is a working church so be mindful of services.

The St. Nicholas Church, a Baroque Masterpiece, was built in the early to mid eighteenth Century, and is located in the Mala Strana (Lesser Town) sector of Prague. I was spellbound when I walked inside this Church.

St. Nicholas Church is located in the heart of Old Town Square. The church is marked by ornate decor and sky-high ceilings. It's one of many visual sights and is worth visiting.

I didn't go inside, but the church itself was gorgeous from the outside. It marks the halfway point between the Charles Bridge and the Prague Castle. You will invariably come across it if you are headed from one to the other.

Esta hermosa iglesia guarda una sorpresa. Su torre pertenece al circuito de las torres visitables de Praga y permanece abierta hasta bien tarde. No es una torre común donde vas a encontrar solo campanas sino que te brindará una sorpresa diferente. Al subir la interminable escalera vas a encontrar diferentes salones o estancias con paneles informativos. Sin embargo, cuando llegas a la cúspide no sólo verás una hermosa vista de la ciudad sino que encontrarás un cubículo acondicionado con muebles, cortinas, televisor y aparatos de radio. Las paredes empapeladas con hojas de periódico, revistas y pósters de los años 60, 70 y 80. Resultó ser el lugar de "trabajo" de un espía de la época comunista, y desde aquí vigilaba a los ciudadanos sospechosos de actividades anticomunistas o sospechosas. Una visita que recomiendo bastante.
