  • I wish I can come there every night to spend some time looking in this perfect "castle ''. Worth to visit  more »
  • During a walk in the Zizkov and Vinohrady districts, we arrived on the peace square (Namesti Miru) absolutely gorgeous with this church, which dominates! We could not go home but the exterior architecture of the Gothic Revival style is sublime, do not miss!

  • If you are close to the neighborhood, drop by, take some pictures, spend some time at the square, take a rest, many locals and tourists are over there. It’s a nice, calm, but also vibrant place.  more »

  • A beautiful and impressive church from the outside. It is lighted up at night and very romantic to sit at the square in front of the church in a warm summer evening.
  • Beautiful church in the peace square. Great location and show from the Signal event and one of the first Christmas markets to open in Prague with better prices that’s the more popular areas
  • Our hotel was right around the corner from St Ludmilla so we used it to orient ourselves much of the time. We finally got to attend mass on Sunday and loved the music and the neighborhood feel of the church.
  • Beautiful church, the door open every time I passed by. And, unlike many Prague churches, one does not have to pay to pray. 🇨🇿😀💒
  • I saw the towers from Metronome in Letna park and decided to explore those towers. The walk with winding route took several hours. On the way we visited many places. The view from Namestni Miru was same amazing as from far away.
