Located at the Old Town Square in the beautiful city of Prague this outstanding Baroque church was completed in 1735. It replaced a church dating back to the 13th century. It has a long history and is today both a church and a venue for concerts - classical ones that reflect the architecture. Definitely a destination for those blessed to travel to the gorgeous city of Prague.
I chose this St. Nicholas church today because the interior reminds me of a - Valentine's Day card!
There were many St. Valentines but the one whose feast is most likely commemorated today was a Christian Priest who was arrested in Rome for marrying Christian couples and helping people in general. The emperor Claudius II was impressed with the saint but when St. Valentine told the emperor about God this otherwise fine emperor became fearful and had the saint beaten and decapitated...
St. Valentine was martyred outside of Rome in around AD 272. He was an older contemporary of St. Nicholas.
Happy Valentine's Day!
