Despite the starts, stops and rebuilds, the end product is a magnificent structure. The Neo-Gothic part of the Cathedral consists of a spectacular main nave lined on both sides with chapels, impressive in their own right. Inside, the nave is flooded with colour from stained-glass...More

This cathedral is beautiful - absolutely stunning inside and out. It is in the middle of the castle grounds - so you can't miss it - but take the time to go inside.

Definitely worth your while. If you are going to visit Prague Castle, be sure not to miss the cathedral. I did not have enough time to go inside however, the queue was massive. Be sure to have enough time,

A must see. Absolutely beautiful inside and out. The colors of the stained glass are unlike any I have ever seen. Certain areas are off limit unless you do the tour but you see a lot without the tour. Absolutely beautiful

Pragua has hundreds of churches. Visit them and just see this from the outside. Tip...go to Kutna Hora and visit St. Barbara s cathedral,they build it to compete St.Vitus and I think it won!

Your experience in Prague will never be complete if
you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched

streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green
gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses.
Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history.
