HISTORY OF THE CHURCH

St. Nicholas on the Old Town Square is one of the oldest temples in the Old Town. In 1635 the temple came to the Benedictine monastery of Emmaus Monastery, which built a monastery here. The construction of the monastery lasted from 1727 until 1730, the work was conceived in a new temple, which was eventually completed in 1735. The church’s plans were drawn up by the famous Prague Baroque architect Kilian Ignazio Dienzenhofer. St. Nicholas in the Old Town is one of his outstanding works. The complexity of the arrangement of his interior, along with his interesting lighting scheme, is one of the most impressive church interiors in Prague.
