Create an itinerary including St. Vitus Cathedral
Prague's finest example of Gothic architecture, St. Vitus Cathedral is the resting place of many saints, kings, princes, and archbishops. Located within the city's World Heritage-listed castle complex, the cathedral notably contains 14th-century mosaics and stained glass by artist Alfons Mucha. The biggest and most ornate of the cathedral's many side chapels features medieval frescoes depicting scenes from the life of Christ, as well as a hidden staircase leading to a chamber housing priceless Bohemian crown jewels. You may not be able to see the real jewels, which are famously protected by seven locks, but you can reward yourself with panoramic views of the city from the cathedral's south tower.

  • Very large and very detailed cathedral. Would suggest 100% for sure. It is hard to comprehend how it was built even.

  • I love this place. Its gorgeous! The cathedral is massive and breathtaking... the view from the city is also something wonderful. Its always crowded so I recommend going there early, so you can try to enjoy it with a little bit of peace. You shouldn't leave Prague without visiting this place.
  • Beautiful doesn't even begin to cover it! You can go into the cathedral without a ticket and see the front portion. You will be able to see the back from far away but it is 100% worth paying to see it all up close. Even my 5 year old was amazed and respectful the whole time we spent in the cathedral. IT IS A MUST SEE!!
  • St. Vitus Cathedral is one of the many buildings contained within the Prague Castle Complex. It is a spiritual symbol of the Czech state. At night particularly, it gave me the chill in my body and nearly looks like a haunted place to me when the bell rang as you can watch in the video. The architecture of St. Vitus is incredibly noteworthy, the stained glass window fill the walls of the church are one of the most prominent aspects of the cathedral.
  • Beautiful cathedral with colourful stained windows depicting religious scenes. You can enter the church for free, but you can only see a small part from the entrance. In order to see the rest you have to get a ticket (general access ticked for the castle complex). You can also find beautiful sculptures from varied materials and a some information about the church. I would definitely recommend to visit the cathedral!
  • The most beautiful church i visited in my life till now. So many huge glass paintings. And when the sun shine it shine with all those colors filled in painting. I never saw that. I made just 3 glass paintings till now i still love it and when i saw this i was mesmerized. It huge and so many of them are there. The church was crowded and needed entry ticket. Its in castle. Very beautiful.
