Church of St Peter

Interesting
Despite the restricted space available on the small square, Lukas von Hildebrandt created a building with an impression of grandeur, Peterskirche or the Church of St Peter (1702-1733). The sumptuous interior decoration, one of the finest in the city, will astound visitors as they enter and find their attention drawn, not to the dome or chapel altar pieces, but to the large gilded pulpit and monumental altar with a gilded wooden statue of St John Nepomuceno's fall into the Moldau.
