St. Francis's Church of Prague

Recommended
A masterpiece of Baroque religious architecture, St Francis Church was built between 1679 and 1689 by French architect Jean-Baptiste Mathey - who designed many buildings in Malá Strana - assisted by Italian Carlo Lurago. The central dome completes the prospect created by the bridge towers and the dome of St Nicholas Church in Malá Strana. The interior, with marvellously harmonious proportions, houses statues and boasts a ceiling painted by Reiner, depicting the Last Judgment.
