Create an itinerary including Kostel svatého Jiljí
Take in the gold details and Romanesque columns of Kostel svatého Jiljí, designed in the 1300s and displaying a combination of Baroque and Gothic architecture. Several famous religious figures have preached here since its construction and the renowned artist who painted the ceilings of the church is buried here. Visit the site and consider attending one of its well-known organ recitals. In addition to the excellent acoustics, the concerts provide a good opportunity to gain insight about the church, as the pastor often speaks about its historical and architectural significance before a performance. In a city known for its classical concerts, this site offers you a somewhat more affordable and personal musical experience. Note that the unheated church can get quite cold inside, particularly during winter months, so dress warmly.

  • This is a large church. The clock tower is nice. And the interior is quite ornate. I was on a tour and o my had about 60 seconds to look at it and I wish I had a bit longer.
