“Gothic giant next to the castle”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

The spires adorn Prague's skyline very prominently and feature in all photos of Prague.

You cannot visit the inner sanctum without purchasing a whole booklet of tickets to other locations on castle hill, but if you just stay in the nave and click a couple of shots it might just be enough.

“Worth it!”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

This is as amazing on the inside as it is on the outside, We bought the 250 Kc combined ticket mainly for entry to St Vitus and Golden Lane.

“Fabulous Gothic Church”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

St. Vitas' Cathedral is on the grounds of the Prague Castle, and therefore it is included in the entry fee for the castle. You can wander most of the grounds of the castle for free but you cannot go inside the interior. St. Vitas' is worth the ticket for the interior. It was a King's church and you can certainly tell this was true.

Very opulent, with much gilded, your ticket buys access to many sections (including below the altar). A must-see!
