Saint Nicholas on the Lesser Side Église Saint-Nicolas de Malá Strana
Structure in General
church (roman catholic)
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.
