St. George's Basilica, Prague

#16 of 143 in Museums in Prague
Find out more about Bohemian Gothic, Rudolphian, Baroque art at St. George's Basilica. Prince Vratislav I founded the church in the tenth century, but the facade you see is the result of the early Baroque reconstruction. Inside the austere and monumental interior of the basilica, notice the walls, which were rebuilt in Romanesque fashion, and the high ceilings made of a deep, dark wood. Decorative windows provide atmospheric lighting--an ideal setting for the occasional classical music concerts held here. Head to the main nave to see the tombs of the members of the Premyslid dynasty of princes. Visit the adjacent Gothic chapel to look at the tomb of St. Ludmila, the widow of the ninth-century ruler Prince Borivoj.

  • €28 for a concert of just 1 hour. But wait! NO HEATING at all! ! ! One entire hour sitting still, freezing at the same temperature as outside (0°). Of course, I'm sick, with fever. That's just miserable. Thanks for ruining my trip, folks. Nice church though. Good concert too. Heat up the place, please.
  • I love that kind of old building made with stone bricks. This is a fascinating one
  • A modestly decorated building and worth a walk through. If you're looking for a richly decorated cathedral, skip this and be sure to see St. Vitus.
  • Beautiful place, si much to visit, I recommand to come early in the morning
  • We were listening to a sopran singer in a gala concert inside this basilica. Very nice
