St. George's Basilica, Prague

(360+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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.

  • Amazing piece of architecture. One of the best churches i have ever seen.
  • Don't know why people are down voting this one. It is simply an amazing piece of architecture and a testament of time. Make sure to see it.
  • A bright pink church behind St. Vitus. It looks great from outside, not quite Gothic in design. You have to pay to get in.
  • The facade of this church completely masks the fantastic Romanesque architecture. It is a fine example of how things keep getting renovated throughout the ages, not necessarily for the better. You can appreciate the older style of church design, with the elegant pillars, side aisles and clerestory windows. There is a monument/tomb inside. Worth a quick peek inside when touring the Prague castle complex.
  • lovely little church that isn't as crowded as the rest of the castle area
