This beautiful organ which is out of public bounds now sits on level one of the St. Nicholas church at Old Town. The church was designed by Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer, and was ready in 1735. The chapel is believed to draw its influence by the chapel of St. Louis-des-invalides in Paris. This pipe organ in the picture has been designed by Peter Adam the Elder. The church was an part of the Czech Hussite movement. The way I see it, its music not just to please Gods, and humans alike, it affects your sensory perception on the whole.
