  • It is clearly the most beautiful church I saw in Prague. Really nice paintings on the ceilings and a very special atmosphere. It is a must see

  • It is small and often found by accident. The ceiling is spectacular and the art is magnificent. If you can find it, it is worth a visit - technically no pictures allowed  more »

  • This is an extremely ornate baroque era church. It is a big contrast to the nearby Tyn Church, which has far more simple interior. Here is the story of the mummified arm, courtesy Wikipedia: "There is also a mummified forearm to the right of the tomb entrance, dating back over 400 years. The arm is the arm of a jewel thief who tried to steal from the high altar, which has a statue of the Virgin Mary. It is believed that when the thief tried to steal the jewels, Mary grabbed his arm and would not let go, therefore his arm was cut off by monks."
  • Beautiful church. No entrance fee.
  • Impressive church and nice story about the arm
  • Baroque? Anyday!
  • Beautiful church with a moral story to tell with mummified hand
