Mozart played the organ in this church, a magnificent example of the "Prague Baroque" period of the 18th century.

Interesting church to visit inside if there is no renovation ongoing, which obstructs the view. Entrance is not free of charge, after all religion is business after all.

Very peaceful with stunning frescoes. Lovely to walk around and not too busy. A little oasis of calm.

I visited twice because it was so beautiful. From the outside you would not expect to find what is hiding behind those doors. I was completely in awe at the beauty and decoration of inside. Stunning an absolute must see when visiting Prague.

Not as big as expected but worth a visit. Typical church with lots of statues. Near to castle and not too far from Charles Bridge

One of the most beautiful baroque church in Prague which was build in second half of 18th. century. You will get the taste of the baroque inside. I recommend to visit it.

I've toured a lot of churches in Europe and this is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful. Floor to ceiling frescoes cover the walls. It is an art lover/appreciator's dream. Don't miss stepping into this church while touring around Prague.

This cathedral is very beautiful. Because you have to pay in order to get in, it is not very crowded, therefore you can also pray in peace. It has a nice art collection and also hosts an organ where Mozart played. Don't miss the view...More

Totally breath taking! Once through the magnificent wooden doors be prepared for the sheer beauty and opulence which is utterly amazing.

This church is magnificent. Often there is someone playing the organ so,it is like you are in another world. Take you time, usually there is a que to get in

The architecture of this church is out of this world. We don’t know where to start looking as every corner of it is as rich of it all. Must see.

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

What you are suggesting would be very appropriate for most concerts at St. Nicholas' church. Definitely no shorts.
