Church of St. Nicholas in the Lesser Town (kostel sv. Mikuláše na Malé Straně)

This church is a Czech Baroque masterpiece. A view of Prague would not be complete without the two towers typical of this church. The construction of the church began, at the end of the seventeenth century, and was completed in 1756. The main builders and architects were Christopher and Kilian Ignac Dientzenhofer (father and son) and Anselmo Lurago (the son-in-law of Kilian Ignac). In the nave vault, we can admire a fresco called Scenes from the Life of St. Nicholas (which measures more than 1 500 m²), and, in the dome, there is the Apotheosis of St. Nicholas and the Last Judgement. In the main altar, we are impressed by the great golden statue of St. Nicholas, made by a famous sculptor of the Czech Baroque style Ignatius Platzer.
