Beautiful Gothic St. Giles Church with Baroque decorations in the heart of Prague Old Town

Immerse yourself into the winding streets of the Old Town and enjoy a fulfilling cultural experience in a beautiful Gothic church with one of the bigest organs in Prague with 3500 pipes, 3 manuals and 50 registers!

The 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 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.

Separated part of the church is the chapel of St. Zdislava with valuable mosaic decorations
