Facts

  • The interior is richly decorated with frescoes, statuary, and paintings.
  • Considered the epitome of High Baroque architecture in Bohemia, St. Nicholas on the Lesser Side was constructed by the Jesuits as a monument to the victory of the Counter-Reformation in that country.
  • Work was begun by Christoph Dientzenhofer, who completed the nave. He was followed by his son Kilian Ignaz, whose major achievement was the great 75 meter high dome. His son-in-law Anslem Lugano finished the work with the 79 meter high tower.
