One of the many churches in Prague, not quite as famous as some of the others on Mala Strana, but very beautiful and peaceful. It is very recognizable in the Prague's panorama, the tall pointy green spire makes it easy to spot. It is near several luxury boutique hotels ( Aria, Golden Well, Alchymist,) with the Augustine hotel practically next... More

Can't explain the sense of peace I felt there, it was quite moving really... And the priest spoke English!. The church is stunning, it's so worth a visit! And it's free!...

Found this church about 18 years ago, while reading the Prague Post. Was looking for an English mass downtown. At first, I couldn't find the place, because it is set back on a small side street. It's actually in a very convenient location. This is a true gem. So much history inside. Even if you are not religious, you should... More

The church is situated between Malostranska and Malostranske names tram stops just where the trams go under some arches. It has very ornate interior with statuary, paintings and beautifully painted ceilings. Well worth the effort going there.

I was looking for a Catholic Church that did mass in English on Sunday and found this very centrally located church online. It was easy to get to, just at the end of Charles Bridge on the Mala Strana side: after the bridge, take a short walk and it is the second small street on the right. The church itself... More

As you enter you are awed by all that you see, from the wood cavings to the white pillars. The alter will tale your breath away and when you look up at the grand organ you really will be speechless.

We were in Prague for Christmas and were looking for a Christmas mass to attend. In looking through this is one of the few that I could find which was English-speaking plus it was very close to where we were staying so we decided to check it out.

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
