St. Nicholas' Church in the Old Town stands out even amongst the impressive buildings of the Old Town Square.
St. Nicholas’ Church, or the Church of Saint Nicholas was built in the Baroque style between 1732-1737, replacing the former Gothic St. Nicholas Church which had been on the site since the 13th Century. This church is not to be confused with the St. Nicholas Church in the Lesser Town of Prague.
The church’s interior is especially memorable due to the crystal chandelier which hangs from the ceiling, which was donated by the Russian Tsar to the Orthodox Church. The church is currently used by the Czechoslovak Hussite Church, and visitors can read about the Church’s history, as well as the wider history of Christianity in Prague and the conflicts centred around it.
The venue is also used for daily concerts.
