Kostel svatého Jiljí (Church of St. Giles)

Kostel svatého Jiljí (Church of St. Giles) Review

Replete with buttresses and a characteristic portal, this church's exterior is a powerful example of Gothic architecture. An important outpost of Czech Protestantism in the 16th century, the church reflects baroque style inside, with a design by Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach and sweeping frescoes by Václav Reiner. The interior can be viewed during the day from the vestibule or at the evening concerts held several times a week.
