Welcome to St. Nicholas Church in Prague's Malá Strana
St. Nicholas Church, the most famous baroque church in Prague, stands together with the former Jesuit Professed House in the middle of Malostranské náměstí (Lesser Town Square).
Consecrated by the Prague bishop Tobiáš in 1283, a medieval parish church stood in its place until 1743 and in the neighborhood a Romanesque rotunda of St. Wenceslas. The present church of St. Nicholas belongs to the most valuable Baroque buildings north of the Alps. Three related generations of great Baroque architects – father, son and son-in-law – took part in this work, which took approximately one hundred years to complete: Kryštof Dientzenhofer, Kilián Ignác Dientzenhofer and Anselmo Lurago.
