St Nicholas Church in Prague – Lesser Town

Dear visitors, St. Nicholas Church in Prague – Lesser Town is open again. The beginning of the 2020 concert season will be delayed.

Please respect the currently required hygiene rules such as entry only in face mask or using hand sanitizer at the entrance of the church. We are looking forward to your visit. 
 

The Church of St Nicholas, the most famous Baroque church in Prague, stands along with the former Jesuit college in the centre of the Lesser Town Square. A Gothic parish church consecrated by Prague Bishop Tobiáš in 1283 stood at the site until 1743; nearby was the Romanesque Rotunda of St Wenceslas. Today’s Church of St Nicholas is one of the most valuable Baroque buildings north of the Alps. Construction lasted approximately one hundred years, and three generations of great Baroque architects – father, son and son-in-law – worked on the church: Kryštof Dientzenhofer, Kilián Ignác Dientzenhofer and Anselmo Lurago.

The Church of St Nicholas is a superb example of High Baroque architecture, a building that astonishes visitors with its size and monumental interior. As the most prominent and distinctive landmark in the Lesser Town, no panoramic view of the city would be complete without its silhouette below Prague Castle. The belfry, surprisingly, does not belong to the church, its owner is the city of Prague. 

More about the Church

 

We have prepared for you almost 200 concerts at St. Nicholas for the period from April 2020 till the beginning of January 2021. The 2020 concert season will start later.
