  • Beautiful church located in Prague 3 to see if you're in that area. Beautiful park surrounding it

  • It is located in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood. Just two metro stops away from Museum (Wenceslas square). I have visited Prague several times and I have to say that I do not know if the Church is more beautiful in winter with snow or summer sun. It's definitely worth coming.

  • On a Friday night after having dinner at the nearby restaurant legend (M Pavlova, where among other things you can enjoy hearty meals and delicious well priced), walking around we came up to Namesti Miru where, from far away stood out in the sky dark spires of another hidden gem of Prague. For us it was a great surprise to enjoy this church surrounded by lawns and flowerbeds. The place is definitely a little beaten by tourists but popular with young pragesi who gathered in piazza sat on the steps and benches. Pity it was evening though the Church was lit up because of day the square with the grounds must be very colorful ...

  • Our favorite place in Prague 2. Beautiful and not crowded with tourists. Enjoy the beauty of Prague like a local would.
  • Very pretty church with enough space in front of it to admire it as a whole, interior has artfully painted roofs and pillars which adds a nice touch. Plenty of benches in front of it to sit and chat and admire the church
  • This church is just beautiful, with an amazing Gothic architecture. Make sure to see the inside to be awed even more.
  • make sure to check out this area at Easter time for a lovely market that isn't as overcrowded as others in the city:)
  • Beautiful church
