An awesome cathedral that took 600 years to build. Beautiful stained glass and contains the tomb of Saint Wenceslas!

Having visited great churches across Europe over the years, we discovered the St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague Castle were impressed with the art and history of the beautiful gothic building. The stained glass windows (from the 20th century) are beautiful. The Mucha window is spectacular. The St. Wenceslas Chapel contains relics of the saint and paintings depicting his life. It... More

Very nice to see the gothic architecture of this magnificent cathedral. The surroundings are also nice, you get to see the city from a nice vantage point.

Its exterior is one of the best i've ever seen as far as cathedrals go. Its numerous jagged edges make it a magnificent example of Gothic architecture. Its interior is less awe inspiring compared to other European cathedrals but impressive nonetheless

One of the grandest churches I've ever seen. Amazing. You don't even really need to purchase a ticket if you're on a budget. Just go inside and check out the views from the area before the ticket taker. You can see the entire of the church, albeit from a distance.

It's positioned inside the Castle of Prague, but you can still enjoy it from any point of the city, especially on the Vltava river because of its hight. You have to pay to get is but it is certainly worth it. You can choose to visit it separately from the Castle, but with a reasonable price you can still enter... More

Take the tour of Prague castle and they take you into the crypt. - teenagers liked. We picked the least expensive tour package and felt it was just the right level of touring.

really worth seeing, a place where millions of people come to pray,over the years. It can be seen the PRAGUE has not suffered destruction during the war.
