Church of St. Nicholas

 stars
For saints and sinners alike, the Church of St. Nicholas is one of the
most extraordinary places to visit in Prague. There are, however, two
churches that take the name of St. Nicholas, so make sure you head to
the one in Mala Strana. With the snow falling now on the city of a
hundred spires, it's the perfect time to catch an organ or choral
concert in this baroque jewel box–not to mention appropriate given the
murals contained within the church of its namesake delivering gifts to
children.

You can't throw a bottle of Pilsner in Praha without hitting an
advertisement for a special concert, usually contained within a church
or other palatial hideaway, but these concerts are usually excellent
quality with musicians who have some serious careers. Its history
complements its culture, to boot: one of the few baroque churches not
destroyed by the communists in the 1950s, St. Nicholas' famous bell
tower and dome were often used as lookout points by secret police. Now
they're just the crowning architectural achievement of three
generations' worth of construction; and while the final product set
several people back in financial crises, you'll only have to part with
250 Kc ($10.00 USD) to enjoy some classical music in an intimate
setting. [more ]
