The two amazingly impressive high Gothic spires of this church seem to be visible from everywhere in the city and are located in the very center of Prague on the Old Town Square. You reach the church through the building in front of it with arched roofs. The stone façade uncovers the Gothic church that dates back to the 14th century, with beautiful bright stained glass, coats of arms on the ceiling and a lot of baroque embellishments: the pulpit gilded over carving, statues of saints below the 2nd floor windows, paintings in gilded frames on the walls, and several chapels with characteristic columns and halos of sun rays. And of course, the church has black with gold organ literally crowned at the top and an immense altar also black and gold with rather primitive figures of saints and bishops. You can also see frescoes from older times with paler but nonetheless beautiful colors and tombs of knights along the walls. In a chapel to the right of the entrance, there is a statue of St. Cyril and St. Methodius.
