  • We specifically attended 10:30 Sunday Mass in order to enjoy the organ concert afterwards. We spent much time attempting to discover when the concert was scheduled, including the church's website and ...  more »
  • Good time of day. Who in this place not visited the Prague Vidal. As soon as I walked into the Church, I'm just stupefied. So I was so amazed that I didn't want to leave. It's just great!! The first time I saw such beauty. That's really where this place comes peace. Serenity, silence. Beautiful paintings, sculptures. And as painted ceilings! I tested all at once-shock, delight and awe. Impression from visiting left for life as something unusual and fascinating. I still have the impression from visiting this place. Tired, not tired-go, relax, poljubujsja beauty. I advise everyone to visit this delightful place-Church of Saint Jacob (Church of St. James). Successful all rest.

  • Very Baroque and recharged. As in all the churches of the area they have good bodies giving free concerts at least in summer. To the right of the entrance you can see the arm of "the thief of necklaces" (local legend).

  • [update: after visiting St. Vitus Cathedral, I still support Basilica of St. James is the best for the interior in Prague! Sorry, St. Vitus ] The decoration is amazing. Super!!!!!! Really!!!!! Must go!!!! Free for entry. Photograph not allowed.
  • A super beautiful church on the inside and also very detailed sculptures on the wall-work outside. Definitely worth a visit if you are into churches and buildings.
  • Hands down awe inspiring. The humble facade outside hides what is probably the most visually striking interior. We were lucky that the organ started playing at 11am when we arrived and combined with the stark contrast to the simple walls outside literally had my jaw open for a good 10 minutes.
  • Lovely and extremely ornate basilica. Free to the public and they ask for donations only. We went about an hour before close on a Sunday and it was so quiet.... peaceful and truly lovely. I recommend visiting the St Agnes Abby which is extremely humble and full of art before coming here...
  • Top of the list of sights in Prague even if you can’t walk all the way down to the altar. Opening hours were a little funny though, was only open 2-4pm on a Sunday but can understand why
