An ornate church with a large cupola dome and detailed frescos. Behind the alter is a highly decorated curved apse with a cross, a large number of statues and rays of sunlight that radiate from a point in the sky where a dove is located. Beautiful.

With its gleaming, 40-meter green cupola peeping above the roofline of Prague’s Staré Město (Old Town), the Neo-Classical church of St Francis of Assisi was designed by Burgundian architect Jean-Baptiste Mathey and consecrated in 1688. Steps away from the city’s iconic Charles Bridge, it replaced the original Franciscan church built in 1270.

Musical Prague. Music in Prague is so easy to find. There are so many different opportunities to take in a concert. The concert halls that are filled with tourists and locals usually require more planning. Concert in church can often be much more spontaneous decision. The St. Francis of Assisi Church is a beautiful Catholic church with a unique baroque... More

The performers were excellent, Organist, Violinist, Soprano, with a mix of solo, duo and trio pieces. Naturally many of the pieces selected were religious. The final one was an exquisite presentation... More

We decided to go for a concert while in Prague and selected the concert they had in this church. What an experience, the sound in this church is amazing and the church is beautiful to be in while music like Ave Marie is played.. Great experience..
