Martinská ul., Praha 1
Gothic church of St. Martin in the Wall is for its location in Prague centre, pleasantly pure interior and good acoustics a very popular chamber concert venue. The Church of St. Martin in the Wall is a well preserved work of medieval architecture.
Its name originates from the fact that one of its walls bordered directly with the Old Town fortification wall. The Romanesque base from the 12th century was later modified in Gothic style and with some Baroque modifications the church was preserved in its original form. St. Martin used to be a lively center of Utraquist Church, supported by wealthy burghers.
The famous Baroque sculptor Ferdinand M. Brokoff is buried in the Church. Nowadays St. Martin in the Wall belongs to the Evangelical Church and concerts of classical music are held here.
Can't say enough about how the small stone church enhanced the sound of the music! We also enjoyed being in such an old, historical location partly within the city walls.
Židle jsou velmi nepohodlné
Beautiful building and very nice acoustic.
ve skoro prázdném kostele nebyl problém najít vhodné sezení
The name "St Martin in the wall church" prompted us to look up its interasting history. Acoustics worked well.
Even though it was a bit cold inside the church (performance on the evening of 17 March), the venue was perfect for enjoying a short concert of favorite classical music pieces. The lighting was just perfect. ... Also, thank you for providing a toilet just by the exit.
The venue was plain but simply authentic as an old church building. Access to the WC was a bonus which was appreciated.
Acoustics were fine and the small size gave us seating close to the performers so we could appreciate them better. Chairs were reasonably comfortable.
The location is pretty close to Old Town Square, less than a 10 minute walk. The chairs were hard and the padding is fairly worn so it did not help much.
