We wandered across Charles Bridge and climbed the streets up to the Castle, and were enchanted with this cathedral. It is a very magnificent building, full of tiny chapels and with stunning stained glass. Our only disappointment was the queue to get through security to enter the castle complex - it took around 45 minutes and we only wanted to... More

The baroque architecture is exquisite so are the stained glass windows. We took the 22 tram upto the castle. We had been told by an information desk person, that it was at the castle where the largest Christmas market was. Disappointed initially as there was no market, however St. Vitus Cathedral is so beautiful that we preferred it to the... More

Another beautiful cathedral. I can never see too many! It houses the crown jewels and the tomb of Good King Wenceslaus!

This cathedral is the most visible building in Prague, being set up on a high hill and illuminated at all times. The view from inside the cathedral is not to be missed, with gorgeous stained glass windows and murals and statues adorning the walls. Outside is worth thorough study as well, with gargoyles and mosaic murals.

The architecture is stunning - soaring ornate towers, fascinating gargoyles - there is a feeling of power here that is thought provoking quite aside from the splendour.

The day I went HEAVY fog along with sunset descended on us like a scene out of a superhero/villain movie. At first I was a bit disappointed I wouldn't be able to see St. Vitus in all its Grandeur. Maybe I didn't, but what I did see and capture was absolutely beautiful! The architecture, designs Statues are simply breathtaking. The... More

It is actually three churches in one, built in three different styles. Wonderful stained glass windows and interior.

This is a lovely old building and the stained glass windows are fantastic to see. Built in stages and only completed in the 20th century it is well worth a visit. You don't need to buy a ticket to stand in it, just to walk around but the walk around is worth it and there are some excellent things to... More

Neighbourhood Profile

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.
