All about The Church of St. Jacob more read here

The Church of St. Jacob (cze: kostel sv. Jakuba) There are 21 altars in the church made by such master craftsmen as Heinsch, Brandl and Reiner, whose panting called The Martyrdom of St James adorns the main altar. After the Cathedral of St Vitus, the Church of St James is the longest church in Prague. In the left nave the baroque tomb of the Czech chancellor Vratislav z Mitrovic attracts most attention. It was designed by Jan Bernard Fischer z Erlachu and decorated with sculptures by Ferdinand Maxmilián Brokoff. It is regarded as the most attractive tomb in the Czech lands. Underneath the tomb is a crypt containing the tombs of the Earls of Mitrovice. There is a well known legend associated with the tomb – the earl was buried alive by mistake and four years later, when the tomb was opened, his body was found in the sitting position trying in vain to lift the top off the tomb. In reality he died and was buried in Vienna.

On the main altar we see a wooden statue of the Virgin Mary, a priceless piece from the 15th century. As legend would have it, this statue was always considered to have miraculous powers and people brought it all kinds of valuable gifts, even gold.

  Tourist guide PRAGUE CITY LINE - Prague 1 (14,7 MiB)

Prague 1 still belongs to one of the most attractive parts of the whole Prague. Probably nowhere else you can find such a concentration of historic monuments and places where the history and romance of bygone times are all around you. Hardly anywhere you can walk on the same paths where were walking Franz Kafka, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and the Golem of Prague.
