Church of St Giles (sv Jilji), Old Town, Prague

East of the Charles Bridge is a maze of tiny narrow streets and here is the parish church of St Giles with two dissimilar west towers and a lofty four bayed hall church attached, Gothic originally (1238-1371) but given a baroque makeover in 1731. The church was open and fairly busy as Confessions were being taken. This makes me a little hesitant about taking photographs but in the end I did risk three. The height and relative short length of the church made photography a bit of a challenge.
