4.4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web
Check out the view from the top of the Czech Republic's highest church spire at Cathedral of St. Bartholomew. If you're standing on the 60 m (195 ft) high gallery of the tower on a clear day, you can see all the way to the mountain peaks of the Šumava region. The construction of this state-protected cultural monument took more than two centuries, beginning in 1295 and wrapping up early in the 16th century. The cathedral features some priceless works of art, the most valuable of which is the 14th-century Gothic statue Madonna of Plzeň, which is next to the altar. The stained-glass windows and the monumental crucifix on the main altar are particularly stunning, too. Our Pilsen vacation trip planner makes visiting Cathedral of St. Bartholomew and other Pilsen attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • This huge church dominates the huge central square, Namesti Republicky. Several unusual modern fountains surround the church and the square is easily accessible by tram from the train station. 
  • Beautiful church with 360 degree views of Pilsen and surroundings. The bells have been restored/replaced and can be seen on the way to the tower. Prices are very reasonable but note there are no electronic payment facilities, as in most places in the Czech Republic.
  • Beautiful cathedral in the middle of Pilsen. Very nice inside and out. The stained glass windows were amazing!! That's what I remember the most. The only problem I had with this cathedral was that we could not get into it. The door was open but there was a cage preventing us from going into the main part of the sanctuary. However, when they were releasing mass, the gate was open so we walked in and looked around. It was also kind of small, but Pilsen is not a large city, so it was not a problem. Don't miss the monument outside or the town hall or any of the other amazing buildings surrounding the square.
  • nichts Besonderes.
  • Pilsen Cathedral of Saint Bartholomew is really beautiful. I really recommend the view up in the 60m high tower (Total of 102.6m) The prices are alright 35kč for adult and 25kč for a student.
  • One of the best cathedrals I have ever seen.
