“Very beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

The outside of this cathedral is amazing. The inside is quite impressive in its size, but especially it's stained glass windows. Well worth the fee.

“The Most Awesome cathedral in Prague.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

This is a cathedral that makes you go wow! Even good king Wenselas is buried here. The stain glass windows are awesome and some of the burial caskets are very ornate dressed in gold leaf. Just go you won't be disappointed. March 2008
