“Visual treats, inside and out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2012

The gothic exterior of the church is iconic, with gargoyle spouts and flying buttresses. The interior features breathtaking stained glass panels, one by Mucha. Tip: There is no admission fee for the cathedral, only for the (non-required) tour.

“Cathederal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2012

The stained glass is absolutely wonderful and the cathederal is very impressive. However you can only access a small section for free (although my guide books said that there was no entrance charge)
