Husova 8, Praha 1
Immerse yourself into the winding streets of the Old Town and enjoy one of the great Prague classical concerts at a beautiful Gothic church re-built into Baroque with one of the biggest organ in Prague! At St. Giles Church you can enjoy mainly organ and chamber concerts. St. Giles Church was one of the locations where Miloš Forman shot scenes of his famous film Amadeus.
St. Giles Church built in the 14th century as a cathedral was temporarily an Utrakvists church until 1626 when it was donated to the Dominican order. The Dominicans built up a large convent, in which the order has been operating until today.
The interior of St. Giles Church features artistically valuable Baroque altars, beautiful preserved confessionals and a unique organ with 50 registers, 3 manuals and 3500 pipes from 1733. The famous Baroque painter V. V. Reiner is buried here. Apart from its spiritual role, the church serves as a cultural center presenting popular concerts of classical and sacred music.
Excellent venue. See my comments above.
Место расположения очень удобное, недалеко от Староместной площади, очень хорошая акустика.
I gave average rating just because the church is very cold in the winter. It is not good for musicians nor their instruments. Please arrange a source of heat for them, thank you.
Beautiful church and nice setting. The building is not heated, so dress warmly. Note that the church had blankets available for no charge.
The Church is amazing, the gold and marble structures really are special.
The Church is very cold however the seats were heated and there were ample blankets for everyone if required
Beautiful decorated church with a very good ambiance and acoustic. Very good location for these kind of concerts
One of the most beautiful churches. By arriving ‘on time’ we also saw the end of a service lead by Dominican monks, which was beautiful to listen to.
Sound is pretty good, you can hear every separate musical instrument, no matter where you seat. The atmosphere of this church fascinates you and boosts the impression from the concert.
The church was beautiful. It was easy to imagine hearing music back in time. Lovely setting.
Beautiful sacred space with great acoustics.
