Admirable Baroque Klementinum Cathedral by the Charles Bridge, in which great chamber classical concerts are held

On your way through Prague Old Town, you can´t miss Klementinum and its three churches. St. Clement is one of them and chamber concerts of classical music performed here are very popular. Today´s Greek Orthodox Church of St. Clement was built as one of the three shrines of the former Jesuit Klementinum College.

It was constituted by Anselmo Lurago and interior decorations of this unique building were created, among others, by the most famous Czech Baroque sculptor Matyáš Bernard Braun or equally famous painter Petr Brandl. The iconostasis has been added by the Orthodox Church. For its excellent acoustics the church of St. Clement is often used as a concert hall.
