“Wonderful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Enormous cathedral - really breathtaking and near the castle where you can see soldiers changing guard. The cathedral is in a really wonderful location and is quite amazing. Combine a visit to the cathedral with seeing Lobkowicz Palace which is in the castle grounds. Enough to occupy anyone for many hours.

“Awesome History & Relics”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We enjoyed this very much. Glad we went. One of very few churches we were able to light a candle. Restoration history is true dedication & we will enjoy the pictures we took with our family.

“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Can be very crowded but worth it. Remember that to get into the cathedral itself, rather than just the entry, you need to go to the ticket office across the square.

“Great Gothic Church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Its not as well known as the one in Koln, much less the Duomo di Milano, or Notre Dame, but still an eminently and well worth-visiting Gothic masterpiece. It is also one of the few (perhaps the only) Catholic Churches in Czech that doesn't charge for entry -- what a disgusting, scandalous, detraction from the faith and Jesus' teachings, for those of us who believe in kneeling, not paying, to be able to pray.

“St. Vitus and Castle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

It was a drizzly day but pleasant to be inside; very well organized and signed. So much history there. Gorgeously appointed. Afterwards we enjoyed a hot mulled wine in the wee cafe. So pleasant.
