Malostranské náměstí 14, Praha 1
The most famous Baroque church in Prague, The Church of St Nicholas, can be found on the Lesser Town square next to the former Jesuit college. With the neighbouring belfry, St Nicholas is the most distinctive landmark in the Lesser Town, completing the unique panorama of Prague.
The Church of St Nicholas, designed according to the model of main Jesuit church Il Gesù in Rome, is a superb example of High Baroque architecture, a temple that astonishes with its size and magnificently decorated interior.
Creation of three generations of architects, it was designed and successively built by father and son Dientzenhofers, Kryštof and Kilian Ignác, and completed by the son-in-law of the latter, Anselmo Lurago. The construction lasted for almost fifty years (from 1703 to 1752) and the temple was decorated by leading artists of the era, such as Ignác František Platzer (inside and outside statues), František Xaver Palko (frescoes), Jan Lukáš Kracker (frescoes), Karel Škréta (paintings), Johann Hennevogel (stucco) and many others.
Due to its artistic qualities, St Nicholas Church is today considered one of the most valuable Baroque buildings north of the Alps.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart played the church's main organ during his stay in Prague. Shortly after his death the requiem mass for Mozart was served in St. Nicholas church, with members of the Prague Theatre Orchestra performing Requiem in Es by František Antonín Rössler.
Thanks to the music tradition St. Nicholas Church in Lesser Town has been one of the most important centers of cultural life and sacred and classical music in Prague. Nowadays, concert dramaturgy revolves not only around the liturgical year but also around national holidays celebrated in various countries.
Kostel sv. Mikuláše je nádherný. Škoda jen, že byla taková zima,ale s tím jsme měli počítat. Možná by se to mohlo napsat do vstupenky,že nejsou vyhřívaná sedadla a ať se lidi hodně oblečou.
Kostel svatého Mikuláše na Malé Straně a tato akce se rovná hezký prožitek.
The church was beautiful and the sound from the musicians was fantastic. It was a very cold night therefore cold inside the church - that's the only reason I did not note the rating as excellent.
Vyšla na nás místa v posledních řadách impozantního sv. Mikuláše a tady už orchestr i sbor akusticky splýval v jeden shluk zvuků. Kdybych Requiem neznala téměř notu od noty, asi bych odcházela se smíšenými pocity.
Program byl pro chram Sv. Mikulase vybran perfektne.
A beautiful church for the concert!
It was so nice place. Compared to St Nicholas Church in old town, I think that the interior decorating and the sound are so beautiful.
L'église St Nicolas de Mala Strana est un lieu magnifique et écouter un concert dans ce lieu est presque magique.
Dival jsem se vetsinou na steny a do stropu, protoze tam toho bylo tak moc na divani.
Banc très inconfortable. Lieu humide.
Beautiful baroque church in the Malá Strana area of Prague
The building is beautiful and it was a privilege to attend a concert in such a well known and historical venue. However, it was very cold and therefore somewhat uncomfortable. I do understand that little can be done about that, but it did detract from enjoyment of the music.
Amazing church. Shame it is not used more for its original purpose.
Lieux magnifiques qui manquaient hélas d’éclairage pour valoriser le cadre, les musiciens et les choristes.
Eglise mal éclairée au moins le cœur et sans chauffage !!!!! On a gelé !
C’était vraiment un très bon spectacle dans un endroit extraordinaire.
The scenario was abosulutely impressive but considering that the concerts takes around 1 hour it was so cold inside the church and some heat was more tan welcome.
Church is under construction, very, very strong spots were shining. We were blinded!
Pity that half of the church was in scaffolding but the front part of the venue was finished and outstanding. Wonderful acoustics. Easy to use website.
Shame that two people kept holding up mobile phones to video and photograph the event annoying all the people in the seats behind. Especially as at the booking office there is a sign that stipulates no mobile phones.
The church is magnificent. The presence of scaffolding for restoration work did not detract from our visit for the concert. The pews, however, are extremely uncomfortable, so even for a short one hour concert I was desperate to stand up!
Sublime, émouvant, une architecture exceptionnelle!!!
Under major renovation and was not the large organ - which has been removed.
Impressive, grand baroque church... but a very cold space, with no heating. Please advise concert audience to make sure to wear warm clothes in the cooler seasons.
Very beautiful place but it's quite cold
It was a lovely church but the interior was covered with scaffolding which rather took away from the venue.
