St. Giles Church, Prague
(4.7/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
Take in the gold details and Romanesque columns of St. Giles Church, designed in the 1300s and displaying a combination of Baroque and Gothic architecture. Several famous religious figures have preached here since its construction and the renowned artist who painted the ceilings of the church is buried here. Visit the site and consider attending one of its well-known organ recitals. In addition to the excellent acoustics, the concerts provide a good opportunity to gain insight about the church, as the pastor often speaks about its historical and architectural significance before a performance. In a city known for its classical concerts, this site offers you a somewhat more affordable and personal musical experience. Note that the unheated church can get quite cold inside, particularly during winter months, so dress warmly. Put St. Giles Church and other Prague attractions into our Prague itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
