Alte Nikolaikirche (Old St. Nicholas Church)

Recommendation by Lemi

Keep an ear out for the harmonies of Old St. Nicholas Church’s 47 carillons! The small chapel, first mentioned as early as 1264, boasts a rich history. Its Baroque-style design is one of the best works of architect Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer, who was entrusted to rebuild it after a fire tore it down in the 17th century. It was owned by several different religious factions until it ended in the hands of the Hussite church in 1920 (they still manage it today). Enter the white-walled chapel to wonder at delicate stucco decoration, religious ornaments, and exquisite frescoes!
