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

Beautiful Cathedral, very crowded on Monday mornings, a lot of school tours to maneuver through, but an incredibly beautiful cathedral.

I'm not saying it's an awful place. It's a nice cathedral (aren't they all?) but the amount of tourists is huge. You have to walk along with the crowds and can't stop whenever you want...no, keep walking! Best part: the window glasses.

It's impossible to miss this cathedral as you can see it from most of Prague. It's nestled atop a large hill inside the castle grounds and looks amazing both day and night. The walk up to the castle takes you along a very steep road, yet once at the top you will have amazing views across all of Prague and... More

Of course I am a bit biast coming from Prague but this cathedral is absolutely beautiful and everyone I've ever met who seen it agreed. The outside and inside is an excellent example of Gothic architecture. Go during daytime to visit the inside but go at night for the magic of the entire castle and the cathedral.
