I do love Prague for many reasons and let me admit, the Church of St. Nicholas is one of them. The church is a breathtaking example of the baroque architecture from the early 18th century. While the outside might not look that sparkling (more than one century of constant smog made it's effect on it), the inside is wonderful.

There is a huge statue of St. Nicholas looking down from the high altar. The walls are guilded and filled with wonderfully colored icons. The hude marble columns, also decorated with gold are also stunning. It's also great for some silent meditation, you can really feel the grandeur of superior powers... :)

There are also wonderful concerts in the church, mostly on weekends. Admission to a concert costs about $20 in Czech Korona.Reply
