Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.

One of the top sights of Prague
Mar 2020
It is one of the most important sights of Prague. It is a must see for every visitor of Prague the first time. The admission ticket is quite expensive, but it also allows to visit other parts of the castle, so it's worth. The interiour of the church is very interesting. They also keep the skull of St. Luke, the Evangelist, although it can not been seen by the public as it is kept in the sacristy.

Great but might be close without an info
Aug 2020
Great architecture, many amazing details. But do not trust the website info, the old people who works in the Cathedral may close early, kick tourists out without a info, they dont even speak English which they work in the main touristic point. If you go in the morning too long line is there, If afternoon they might close the building anytime, even though the website says that they are open till 6pm.

Superb Cathedral.

Superb Cathedral. The interior is even more impressive than the exterior, with beautiful old, and recent, stained glass windows.
