St Thomas' Church, Prague

Saint Thomas Church (Czech: Kostel svatého Tomáše) is an Augustinian church in Malá Strana, Prague, Czech Republic. The address is at Josefská 8.[1] The church was rebuilt in the 1720s in baroque style, and features a dome on top of the nave and a bell tower topped with slender spire on the front facade of this religious structure.[2] It is a burial place of Butautas Kęstutaitis, the son of Kęstutis, Grand Duke of Lithuania.

The church is easily recognisable in the Prague skyline. Saint Thomas' Church stands within the vicinity of both Saint Nicholas' Church and the Castle of Prague.
