“A beautiful cathedral”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

This cathedral is situated in the Prague Castle complex and is well worth a visit. You can actually enter the building for free, but in order to see all the chapels and other parts of the cathedral other than the entrance area, it is well worth buying a combination ticket which includes other buildings in the complex. It's valid for two days, so you don't have to rush around.

“Worth the visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

We didn't pay to go round the cathedral (although it would of been good if we had the time) but you are able to go in for free and look around to a point.

It is a beautiful and impressive cathedral inside and out with amazing stain glass windows and architecture

“Most sacred place in Czech republic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Although this cathedral is very old and part of a prestigious Castle complex, it still holds services. Tourists can wander around and admire the ancient tombs of kings and saints. It is best to visit it early, before the crowds start coming in.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Maybe because I do not fancy such monuments, I did not see anything interesting in this cathedral. I do not think it is much different than the other cathedrals. It was pretty cold inside. Colder than outside. Waste of time for me.
