It was dedicated to one of the greatest patrons of the Baroque period: St. John of Nepomuk (svatý Jan Nepomucký). His name also refers to the fact that it is built on a rock. Kilian Ignaz Dienzenhofer masterfully constructed it on this difficult rocky terrain. The difference in height between the street and the church’s beautiful double staircase as well as the entire building was completed with the remarkable impression of a pair of forward leaning towers, built at an angle.

The inner space of the church is based on the grounds plan of an octagon, and has concave sides. Inside the main altar you will find a wooden statue of St. John of Nepomuk, created by John Brokoff; which is older than the church. This statue was the model for the oldest bronze statue of Charles Bridge(Karlův most) and became a kind of model for other statues which appeared in the following year year at the Feast of St. John here and abroad. The vault of the church is decorated with frescoes by Karel Kolář from 1784, which is displays the glorification of St. John of the Little Rock.
