St. Nicholas Church - the gem of Prague Baroque
St. Nicholas Church with it’s robust dome and thin bell-tower is one of the leading baroque constructions in Europe and is usually defined as being the most beautiful building of Prague baroque.
The Church of St. Nicholas was erected in the natural centre of Lesser Town, where the Parish Church of St. Nicholas stood as early as in 1283.
The main architectural design was made by Krystof Dientzenhofer and his son Kilian Ignac Dientzenhofer between 1702 – 1752. It was Kilián who designed the unique vault and robust dome, which became one of the Prague’s main landmarks.
