St. Vitus Cathredal is very beautiful, but you have to really want to see it, because you have to climb a slope and some stairs to reach it. Requires physical preparation and does not produce wonderful pictures, because it is very close to the castle and you can't shoot it full on close. The photos will be better by far.

Having been taken round a lot of cathedrals by my parents when I was a child, I have had a tendency to see each and every cathedral (with the exception of the Sagrada Familia) as yet another cathedral - a repetition of the same themes, altars and votive candles. However, I found the St Vitus particularly striking. It's very beautiful... More

A visit to the Prague Castle and St. Vitus is a must if you're in Prague. Go early in the morning to avoid the crowds.

Located in the yard of Praque Castle, where is the Presidential Palace, the Archbishopic Palace the golden street of the alchemists, so is good for a tourist to see all these attractions and have wonderful views of the town from the castle. Reminds me a lot the Strassburg Cathedral. Excellent architecture, amazing vitrau windows, the statues, everything. Very Impressive, great... More

A huge and impressive cathedral, a part of the Castle of Prague. Worth a visit. Both the high turrets and the beautiful inside are very spectecural.

Totally in love with it, great building, so big! Amazing architecture, but unfortunately I couldn't manage to get inside and it was holidays when I went to Prague so it was packed with people. But definitely worth it a visit!

Symbols on the facade are even grotesque, the gothic style is impressive and the stained glass windows are fabulous.

Wonderful architecture. The stained glass windows were bright and colourful. There was a service in progress when we arrived so we didn't get to see all of the inside.

Impressive gothic style church that holds the Boehieman Crown Jewels (not viewable) and a dominant landmark seen throughout Prague skyline. Interesting to see the exterior of the cathedral since it was done at different times vs being finished all at once. You are able to notice the weathering of the exterior (ash color), and instead of it being a full... More
