Long Description:

Construction of St. Nicholas Church at Lesser Town began in 1703. This magnificent building is the largest of Prague's churches founded by the Jesuits. St. Nicholas is the masterpiece of Kryštof and Kilián Ignác Dientzenhofer, a father and son duo who constructed many buildings during the Baroque period. Unfortunately, neither lived to see its completion. The building was finished by Kilián's son-in-law, Anselmo Lurago.
