When claiming up the stairs to the famous Prague Castle, which itself is amazing, you do not expect to discover another jewel behind the castle walls. This cathedral can amaze you by the way it looks both inside an outside. also walking around it, if you concentrate, you can feel hundreds of years of history under your feet... Superb place....

The outside of the church was beautiful . It was interesting to see the carvings of the gargoyles as well as the carvings of the architects. We just walked into the church to enjoy the stain class windows and noticed that they are sponsored for support. It is beautiful

It is a very beautiful Cathedral. There is a fee to go inside and you will go in a one way traffic flow. You can see a lot by not paying the fee. the stained glass windows are beautiful as is everything else about this cathedral. Highly recommended

The foremost attraction at the Prague Castle is the Cathedral of St. Vitus. You can see a partial view without purchasing a ticket. Yet a partial view of such a monolithic church isn’t sufficient. It is an unusual Cathedral. Along the bottom half of the sanctuary, there are surreal, psychedelic stained glass windows alternating with traditionally representational tableaux. Off to... More

The glasswork, the architecture, the roofbeams, the sheer grandeur of it all. A must-see for all who love superior craftmanship.

See if you can attend a mass here; just check the schedule and let the guards know you're there for mass. While you worship, you'll have time to sit and take in the beauty of the building! Don't miss it!
