A beautiful blend of Gothic and Baroque architecture and amazing beautiful stained glass windows. There are two windows which are beautiful, but very different from all the other stained glass windows, they were painted by the artist Mucha. it is an amazing Church.

Worth the climb to the castle and the entry fee. This is the largest religious building in Prague and if you’re interested in old churches and gothic architecture then you certainly won’t be disappointed. The most beautiful stained glass windows which we saw at their...More

This cathedral is stunning! You don’t have to pay to enter the foyer of the cathedral so if you just wanted to see the decor inside rather than seeing the alters, etc, you can get some beautiful photos that way.

The cathedral was very beautiful and extremely impressive. There were a few boards with information on in English but not many. If you want lots of information then I'd recommend getting an audio guide.

Having visited many a Cathedral is this not any different, but I have to say you do need to step inside and see the beautiful stained glass windows, I never paid for the full experience but I was happy with what I saw

Recommend having a look through here or doing a tour. It’s located inside the castle so you can see a few things at once. Free to enter & there is a cafe & toilets (costs to use). The cathedral is beautiful & interesting to look...More

This cathedral is inside the grounds of Prague castle and does not disappoint. It is absolutely breathtaking. Well worth the visit.

My first impression was that the cathedral was very dirty from the pollution. I wish to point out that the elaborate and ornate façade was last restored in 1907 and 1953 and had images of cowboys and Indians carved in the statuary decoration. Built over...More
