One of the most spectacular cathedrals I have seen. The sheer majesty of it takes your breath away. It is worth visiting with a guide as the history is very interesting. Certainly a highlight of visiting Prague.

Elaborate architecture and interior. Good signage for tourists. St Wenceslas' tomb is amazingly decorated and despite being roped off, you,cam get a good view of the artwork.

The size of this huge cathedral makes the intricacy of it even more stunning. The history of the site is also incredible - it is well over 1000 years old! It is set within the Prague castle complex so it is one of many easily accessible attractions. The interior of the cathedral is even more impressive than the exterior. The... More

The immense size, detail and style makes this one must see Catedral! Although it was packed with people, nobody was even looking to the chaos! The eyes were looking high up to the immense ceiling, with its architraves that really defy gravity! The artistically worked art that was combined with the cold stone was amazing and creates an atmosphere indescribable!... More

This is a beautiful space. It is still a consecrated working church so gentlemen PLEASE take your hat off. We had to listen to staff say this in English over and over and over. Not sure why they expected all to understand English. Space is beautiful. With a guide, human or audio you will learn more about Czech history and... More

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighbourhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
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.
