“Good, Not Awesome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

This is a lovely cathedral with beautiful stained glass windows located in the Prague Castle complex. It is worth seeing if you are in the complex but it is not one of the great churches of the world. The outside of the church is much more impressive than the inside since it is architecturally and artistically relevant from all sides.

“Get a Ticket & Go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

My favorite place to visit inside the Prague Castle. Buy a ticket and take your time exploring the Cathedral from the inside out.

“Another stunning cathedral in a city full of them”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

St Vitus' is within the Prague castle complex. There are various types of tickets that allow entry into different buildings within the area. I would recommend checking the website beforehand which you will want to visit and perhaps check the Prague Card website to see whether you can see everything that you want more cheaply.
Entry to each individually is not expensive but if you can save a few pennies so much the better.

“Awesome cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Stained glass windows all over this huge cathedral, wood carvings, statues, gold and silver all over. Pick up an audio tour to learn about all the various sites. This is really full of tourists so pace yourself, no resting spots, cameras are OK.
