Church of St Castullus

Church of St Castullus (also known as Church of Saint Castulus) is one of the finest Gothic buildings in Prague. The church was built in the late 1300s as a small Romanic church. It burned down on 21 June 1689, as a tragic, revolting arson case struck both the Old and the New towns. Fortunately, beautiful slender pillars supporting a delicately ribbed vault survived the fire. Inside, you can see wall paintings, religious statues and a sacristy, Baroque furnishings and a decorated metal font. 

Location: Haštalské náměstí (Hastal Square)
Open: irregularly
In Czech: Kostel svatého Haštala
